Review:

Apropos of the club name, this is a true "insider" Pinot noir not readily available outside of Oregon. Whistling Ridge Vineyards is divided in two - both sites are in the coveted Ribbon Ridge AVA (with such illustrious neighbors as Beaux Freres). The non-irrigated vineyard sells much of their fruit, including to one of our favorite Oregon wineries, Matello. The connection doesn't stop there - Matello owner/winemaker Marcus Goodfellow makes Whistling Ridge's estate wines.

"Let it be" is much more than a great Beatles song, it's Goodfellow's winemaking philosophy. His Pinots are pure and elegant, devoid of heavy oak influence. The 2010 La Terra is classic example of 2010 Willamette Valley Pinot noir: silky texture, crushed berry flavors, food-friendly acidity. - Marcus

The two Whistling Ridge Vineyards, located in the Ribbon Ridge AVA of Oregon's north Willamette Valley, were first planted in 1989. Most of the vineyards' grapes are sold to wineries in the area. Their winemaker Marcus Goodfellow (Matello Wines) produces a Pinot noir and a Pinot gris for the owners each year.
