Raptor Ridge winemaker Scott Shull makes estate wines and bottles a variety of single-vineyard wines from quality sources around the Willamette Valley. But the wine that gets the strongest critical reviews is, of course, his Temperance Hill Vineyard bottling. Are you seeing a pattern here?
From Suckling: “This is from an elevated parcel that ripens late in the sequence of Raptor pinot parcels and offers an array of potpourri-like aromas with rose hip, dried red and blue flowers and spiced wood with bright red cherries. The palate has a very lithe and elegant yet powerful feel with bright red cherries, set amid fine-grained tannins and a vividly crisp, bright finish. Drink over the next six years.”
