Winemaker Chuck Ortman Notes
There’s a special section, deep in the vineyard, that’s been affectionately termed “The Mesa” for many years now.  This four acre block is one of the oldest at Riverbench, and is planted with Martini clone on its own rootstock.  Year after year, the fruit from these vines makes remarkably different Pinot Noir; there is a liveliness that refreshes the palate and stirs the senses.  Lush and feminine textures seduce the palate at first sip, then give way to a strong, confident finish of earthy tones and rich red fruit.  Wild mushrooms and lamb burgers match so well that one glass just won’t be enough.
