Abbey Ridge explores the exotic and sultry side of Pinot noir, so distinctive and so damn good. Wearing brighter shades in 2017 and undeniably elegant, the best kind of musk mingles with crushed red fruits, lavender, and soft rose petals. Exhibiting the kind of seamless movement that can only come from old vines (40 years, in Abbey Ridge's case), we can't decide if its powerfully delicate or delicately powerful. Take your pick. Many years ago, this rose to "must-have" on any Willamette Pinot shortlist; the strength of the '17 vintage further cements it. Utterly tempting to open a bottle now (go ahead, you have our full permission), in 2024, 2030, or any time in between. - Marcus
