Ridgecrest 2020 Estate Pinot Noir Rose Ribbon Ridge, Willamette Valley
Father and daughter team run this small little winery that was founded in 1980. Pinot Noir Rose can often come off tart, lean and lacking much by way of complexity but this Ridgecrest is anything but lacking. Not heavy and there is a nice little under ripe strawberry but then comes a rush of cranberry and herbs. Plenty of texture and lift, this is a perfect partner to salmon and smoked meats.
