2018 Goodfellow Family Cellars Pinot Noir Whistling Ridge Vineyard - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Ribbon Ridge (12/10/2020)
Ever had a crazy day at work, where later on you just wanted a wine that was serene, and contemplative? I had one of those today, and this was just what I needed after it ended. I really did not even need to drink the wine, as the aromatics were transportive. An ethereal carpet ride through the Willamette Valley, and to Ribbon Ridge, which for my palate is a unique and distinctive AVA that imbues a level of nuance that I don't always see from other Willamette Pinots. Strawberry and cranberry fruit with earthy and herbal accents make for a food friendly and disturbingly easy to drink wine. I love the light touch from Goodfellow, and keep going back for more, because there's zero weight or heaviness. It's just too easy, and too friendly.
