Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Pronounced aromas of black currant, dark cherry and plum surrounded by dusty spice notes of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Broad on the palate with a pleasing lift that supports the weight and texture of this wine. This is very Ribbon Ridge with a fullness and fruit-forward character that goes on and on.
PG 93
Paul Gregutt
Full, firm and forceful, this is a sturdy, solid, almost blocky vintage for this estate selection. Black cherry dusted with cocoa gives the fruit a chocolatey note, and the finish resonates with a saline note derived from the high-quartz marine sediment of the AVA. 560 cases made.
JS 92
James Suckling
The 40-million-year-old marine sediment soils of high-quartz sandstone and weathered bedrock on Ribbon Ridge were once under the Pacific Ocean and produce wines with a darker fruit profile and spice notes of nutmeg and clove. The sandy soils of the Ridge generally produce wines with more structure and greater aging potential. The 2021 Ribbon Ridge was fermented with 38% whole-clusters and aged in 25% new French oak barrels.

Founded by James Frey and Andrea Lassa, Trisaetum, nestled five miles outside McMinnville, Oregon, embodies their dreams of owning a piece of land to cultivate, raise a family, and create exceptional wines.

Pinot Noir grapes exhibit a distinct elegance. Their thin skins and tightly clustered berries make them susceptible to disease and challenging to cultivate. However, the rewards of this persnickety grape are extraordinary. Pinot Noir wines possess a remarkable flavor profile, often described as silky, with vibrant acidity, delicate tannins, and an array of aromas. Expect to encounter red fruit notes like cherry and raspberry, accompanied by earthy undertones, floral hints, and sometimes a touch of spice. Renowned regions such as Burgundy in France, the Willamette Valley in Oregon, and California's Sonoma County have become synonymous with exceptional Pinot Noir production. Each region brings its own terroir and climate, contributing to the wine's character. Burgundy, for instance,... Read More

Winemaker of Trisaetum Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Estate 2021

James Frey

James Frey, a remarkable winemaker, and abstract expressionist painter, defies traditional career paths with his unconventional journey into the world of wine. Armed with an undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of California, Berkeley, and later acquiring an M.B.A. and a Masters in Exercise Physiology from the University of Arizona, James's path to winemaking might seem unlikely. However, his passion for winemaking led him to learn the craft, guided by mentors such as Oregon's Josh Bergström and Burgundy's Jacques Lardiere. The fruits of his labor became evident as his wines consistently made appearances in major publications' Top 100 Wines of the Year lists from 2013 to 2019. In 2015, one of James's wines achieved global recognition by being ranked as... Read More

Ribbon Ridge, nestled within Oregon's esteemed Willamette Valley, has a rich history dating back to 1980 when the first vines were planted. This region was granted AVA status in 2005, distinguishing itself as a notable sub-region within the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Positioned on a free-floating hill, Ribbon Ridge is bounded by Ayres and Dopp creeks in the north and west, with Chehalem Creek to the west, creating a distinctive terroir for winemaking.

The region's defining feature lies in its marine sedimentary soils, a stark contrast to the volcanic Jory soils found in neighboring AVAs. These ancient,... Read More
