Originally planted as a post-career avocation, this site receives attentive handwork – from planting to farming to harvest. Owner Glenn Howard works with his full-time vineyard manager, Maritza Soto, throughout the year on his family property, where he lives with his wife and two sons. 2015 marks our final vintage with this unique vineyard site. The nose offers baking spices and a hint of earthy tobacco, while the palate brings raspberries with elegant herbal notes of tea and a silky, delicate mouthfeel.
The 2017 vintage is a unique offering, loaded with a pleasant earthiness throughout both the nose and palate. Hints of leather and tobacco on the nose are followed by blueberries, vanilla, and cranberry chutney on the palate. Soft and surprisingly velvety in its youth, we recommend decanting this wine for at least 30 minutes before enjoying.
This Pinot has concentrated aromas of dark fruits and rose petals followed by earth notes on the palate. As always, JP has crafted this wine to be silky and elegant, with a long finish and silky mouth-feel.
Winemaker JP Valot, originally from Mendoza, calls this Malbec “an Oregon wine with an Argentine soul.” This new wine offers a lush nose laced with boysenberry and cocoa. Soft yet concentrated on the palate, with additional flavors of black cherry, vanilla, and cardamom. A great alternative to Cabernet and highly versatile, this wine pairs beautifully with anything from pizza to barbecued steak.
This graceful, generous wine displays rich, deep blackberry and cassis flavors with overtones of delicious toasted oak on the finish. Warning: this wine may make you hungry for steak.
The winemaking team at Silvan Ridge, headed by JP Valot, is proud to have helped craft this wine as part of this historic effort.
