Great value from Oregon

2011 Trisaetum Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir....$29.99
On-Sale was $47.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher...$38.67
While not as ripe as the heralded 2012 Vinatge in Willamette Valley the 2011 Vintage produced wines of amazing elegance and finesse. This 2011 from Trisaetum is just starting to show he beauty of a cool vintage in Oregon and the great terrior of Ribbon Ridge.

Trisaetum’s 2011 Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Estate marries deeply savory roasted red meat juices with brightly fresh plum and sour cherry. There is a significant overlay of tannin including from barrel, but fortunately the retention of primary juiciness and savory carnal as well as saline mineral elements that jump-start the salivary glands help one overlook any roughness. I would anticipate improvement and high performance through at least 2018
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
