Vintage Notes 201935th Harvest Anniversary

2019 was an old school Willamette Valley Harvest: watching weather reports, valuing coffee over beer, charging bird cannon batteries, and consoling old friends newly moved to Oregon from California. Chats, waiting to offload an ancient truck’s fruit, were punctuated by “cool growing season, early rains, hang time, sugar, birds, electric sunset, botrytis, more birds, sunny days are overrated anyway…”

Despite an old-school vintage, the concentration, depth of flavor, color and structure of recent years all seem to be there. And the old is new again!

Winemaker’s Notes 

We are suckers for Riesling. There, I said it. And this is our first version under the Ridgecrest label. Upon first impression this wine is youthful and will continue to evolve and open-up with time. But what we already see is classic Ribbon Ridge stone-fruit, juicy aromas of yellow plum or ripe apricot, and fresh air-hung laundry. A bit of residual sugar on the palate gives this wine a lushness and rich viscosity that classic aged Rieslings benefit from, but a bright refreshing razor-sharp acid. that helps prove why Riesling is the most food-friendly wine on the block. Ripe pears, white flower and spicy ginger finish strong and hold onto your tastebuds. Super duper age-worthy.
