Foot-trod in the picking bins with zero sulfur at crush. Allowed to sit on skins and stems for a day before pressing and settling into neutral French oak. Barrel-fermented and allowed to complete malo-lactic fermentation. Bone dry and unfiltered. Notes of crisp apple and Bosc pear, honeysuckle, and sea salt.
Single Vineyard bottling of sustainably farmed Yamhill Valley Vineyards Pinot Blanc. Own-rooted, 40 year-old vines in the McMinnville AVA. Direct pressed, barrel fermented. Low sulfur, low-intervention. Unfiltered.
100% Mourvedre from Carpenter Hill Vineyards in the Rogue Valley AVA. The fruit was gorgeous. We gently pressed off into a stainless steel tank to settle overnight. Go to barrel clean, and allowed to naturally ferment and complete ML in neutral French oak barrels. Aged for 5 months. Notes of strawberry, kiwi, and watermelon, with a nice "grip" on the finish--the natural tannins from the skins--that is sure to complement spicy and rich foods, and anything off the grill. (A sunny day is also a great pairing.)
1.5 Liters of this Spring Release. For Club Members ONLY! Only 12 Magnums hand-bottled by the winemaker. Each magnum is signed by the winemaker, and dipped in wax. Can sit for 3-5 years, or totally ready to drink this summer for your first big BBQ gathering in over a year! Cheers!
A representation of my cellar, and of the great State of Oregon. Two-thirds (2/3) of the blend is Willamette Valley Pinot Noir; the other third (1/3) is from the Rogue Valley AVA in Southern Oregon. Wild ferment of gently crushed fruit. Aged in neutral French Oak for six months. Unfined and always unfiltered. Drink now (with a slight chill is nice), or 3-5 years. It is ready to go, but has the tension to go the distance. NOTE: Very BBQ FRIENDLY.
A blend of sustainably-grown Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. 30% whole-cluster fermentation, with wild-yeast ferments. No sulfur used at the crush pad. Aged in neutral French Oak for 10 months. No additives, this wine is unfixed and unfiltered. Drinking beautifully in its youth, this pinot exudes a red-fruit-forward expression. Soft on the palate, yet exhibiting a long finish, the 2019 Pinot Noir is ready to drink now, but can certainly be aged for up to 10 years, if not longer.
Single-Vineyard Tempranillo from Certified-Organic Coventina Vineyards in the Rogue Valley AVA. 30% whole cluster fermentation with native yeast. Full ML. 50% new French oak. 10 months in barrel. SOCIAL CLUB ONLY! This is a pre-release sale for Ricochet's most ardent supporters! Cheers!
