Notes from Chehalem Winery:

"Named for Patrice Rion, our friend from Burgundy who gave us advice several times over the years, we look for this wine to embody the essence of pinot noir. Select barrels and fermentation lots are chosen from Ridgecrest Vineyards before any blending is done in the cellar. Cheryl and Harry choose components to make a wine that epitomizes finesse, elegance, complexity, textural silkiness, and palate breadth and length for a vintage. We think these elements are what pinot noir is all about--not as big as we can make it, but as beautiful as we can make it. To date, our Rion Reserve has been comprised of Ridgecrest Vineyard fruit. Our oldest estate vineyard, Ridgecrest is a 37 acre vineyard on a 72 acre property." Chehalem Winery
