River's Edge Pace Family Vineyard Pinot Gris 2009

100% PInot Gris Alcohol: 14.8% Total Cases Produced: 352
Aging the old-fashioned way in older oak barrels makes for a dry wine with a supple mouth feel and smoother finish. A complex bouquet of pear and grassy notes along with flavors of lemon/lime make this an exquisite and refreshing wine.

     
 

River's Edge Umpqua Pinot Noir 2009

100% PInot Noir Alcohol: 14.6% Total Cases Produced: 1650
11 months in new and old French and American Oak give this wine a focused bouquet of black cherry and leather. It is light and silky on the palate with hints of spice and subtle damp earth.

     
 

River's Edge Barrel Select Pinot Noir 2009

100% PInot Noir Alcohol: 14.3% Total Cases Produced: 570
The Barrel Select reflects the vintage and the criteria for evaluating quality. 2009 was a warm vintage, and thus the wine is more supple than many vintages. The aroma of hazelnuts is complemented by vanilla from new oak, flavors of black cherry and raspberry grace the palate, and the finish is supple.

River's Edge Winery, a family owned business founded in 1998, specializes in the production of the highest quality Pinot Noirs. Two estate vineyards, Black Oak and Elkton, located in the Northern most part of the Umpqua Valley of oregon are the primary sources for the wine.
