Wadensvil Clone, Willamette Valley. This is light bodied Oregon Pinot Noir with a hit of perfumed lift. The nose shows a soft red cherry, raspberry and a bit of black cherry with cola and a pretty minerality and a hit of just there camphor. The palate is light bodied with cherry, spice, minerals and a just there cola note. D&M Tasting Notes
Wine Making and Notes: This 3.1 acre block in the very back of the vineyard was planted in 1997. When we bought the property in 2000 this section was had nearly quite had it. In July of 2000 this section was already entirely rife with yellow leaves. The plants were simply over-taxed from a large crop load in their first year of production followed by a dry summer and there was no hope that the fruit was going to ripen so it was all dropped off in hopes of rescuing the plants. Over the next several years this block was attended to with a special fury and the wine got incrementally better. By 2014 the block had made a complete transformations and was serving as one of the major components of the Estate Vineyard bottling.
In 2015, when this block entered the “Oh yeah, this is a stand-alone wine now” zone we were extremely excited. Wadensvil Clone planted in marine soils make really spectacular wines once the vines get to the point of maturity. The 2017 is an excellent follow from the first two vintages that proceeded it. Simply gorgeous aromatically and on the palate, but underpinned by the darker notes our site provides. It is laced with minerality and super-fine tannin structure - this is a classic Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir! Winery Notes
