...it was gorgeous, if a touch precocious.
"I took a considered moment with a Raptor Ridge Reserve 2002 recently, and it was gorgeous, if a touch precocious. With the wisdom of a couple more years, it will surely be a gem." - Jack Chester, New York
...a glorious example of Oregon Pinot noir...
"Saturday evening at Swedes Inn Restaurant, where I am the wine program director, the owners and I sat down and enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine - Raptor Ridge Shea 2002. It was a glorious example of Oregon Pinot noir, full of ripe cherry and hints of raspberry flavors, with a powerful sweet fruit aroma that promised what we received from the glass. That haunting note of evergreen forest was there in the nose, and the finish was long, rich and very satisfying. This was a tremendous effort on your part, and I look forward to enjoying the other three bottles still resting in my cellar. Thanks for a great experience." - Carl Hudson, November 20, 2007
Reminds me of a great vosne romanee at 5 times the price.
"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful a recent bottle of 2002 Meredith Mitchell was to my wife and I. The wine possesses a deep red color with stony nose and chalk finish. Reminds me of a great vosne romanee at 5 times the price. I thought you would enjoy positive comments from a mostly burgundy fan...awesome." - Jeffrey Smith
