Goodfellow Family Cellars Pinot Noir "Ribbon Ridge" '16

Marcus Goodfellow produces an incredible array of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Gris. He works with a handful of grower - farmers, top sites, sustainably and dry farmed. He doesn't overwork the wines, and produces really pure wines that taste great young, but also evolve in bottle. Marcus’s wines exhibit great restraint coupled with beautifully ripe fruit and are a true pleasure to drink.

The wines focus on terroir, expressed through carefully grown old vines, and traditional winemaking to craft single vineyard-designate wines that are transparent, age-worthy reflections of grape, time, and place.

In working directly with farmers, Marcus finds a more meaningful connection to the earth, weather, and vines. They see, feel and taste an intimacy of place in their wines. Part and parcel of the family business is cultivating relationships, to the vines as much as to the people who drink the wines. 

Up front and dynamic, showing beautiful mixed berries and subtle, spice-laden structure beneath. The product of a clearly outstanding vintage for Whistling Ridge Vineyard, this wine's source.

Ribbon Ridge is best described as elegance married into structure. Expect soft, expressive red fruit along tobacco, herbs and hints of earth with fine tannins, tension and drive.
