Just the right mix of delicious, ripe fruit and subtle earthiness, this Ayres Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is perfect for your favorite roast chicken recipe. Or, switch things up; spatchcock it and roast it over mixed vegetables; you won't believe how good they are after basting in the chicken juices. Garlic butter baked salmon with creamy potatoes Anna is another great option. Don't feel like cooking? Put together a charcuterie board with some  salami, prosciutto or jamon, aged goat cheese, Manchego, membrillo, crusty bread and maybe a pate or two and you're good to go. Once again, we are wowed by yet another stellar Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley; what are you waiting for winelovers?!

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby color and perfume of crushed cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, cinnamon, clove and pipe tobacco with warm earth and tea leaf notions. The palate is medium-bodied with bright red berry fruit, a grainy frame and long, fresh finish. Drink 2020-2025." Apr 2020

Winery:  "Once again, our Ribbon Ridge estate fruit and our leased vineyard, Oliver Vineyard, within the Yamhill-Carlton AVA experienced an ideal growing season in 2018. The beautiful fall went on forever and we were able to harvest leisurely and intentionally. This approachable Pinot Noir has notes of roasted plum, cherry, baking spices, rose petal & lilac."
