...the best bottle of Oregon Pinot I've had.
"We opened a bottle of 1998 Murto for dinner last month. It was amazing! I was worried when I found it in our cellar. It had been stuck in a corner somehow with some cab that we're saving. I didn't know if eight years would be too much for an Oregon Pinot, but there was still lots of fruit and complex flavor. It was the best bottle of Oregon Pinot I've had, and was empty way too soon. Raptor Ridge is making some of the best Pinot anywhere - California and Burgundy included." - David Peaslee
So now I feel guilty that I shared the bottle with my two girlfriends...
"Thank you for the recommendation to consider trying a bottle of the 1998 Murto. My friends and I really enjoyed this wine last night with duck confit. Nicely balanced, at first it seemed just a bit light-bodied and silky for my taste, but then all of a sudden - POW! So now I feel guilty that I shared the bottle with my two girlfriends and not my husband." - Wendy Wolsh Bisset
...one of the best PNs we've tasted.
"Scott, Patty and I have just enjoyed - really enjoyed - a bottle of your 1998 Shea Pinot noir with lamb chops, asparagus and green salad. Good nose, smooth, pleasant flavors, nice mouthfeel, good long finish - we really think this is one of the best PNs we've tasted." - Roy Marshall, Oregon
This wine just made my day.
"Yesterday Easters big family party. I had the redtail hawks flying above and decided to open your wine. Down to the cellar I went. This wine just made my day. Twenty-four hours later my mind is enjoying this great (1998 Murto Pinot noir) wine." - Ray Duyn, Oregon
