Lean and brightly red-fruited, this Pinot carries both herbal and spice pungency into a juicy, brisk but impressively sustained finish, with – as one often witnesses in this vintage – the marrowy meaty dimension supplying what sense of richness is present.
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve
Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge Appellation of the Willamette Valley on a 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends and business partners, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of Pinot Noirs from several vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Willamette Valley with a particular emphasis over the years on Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and the Chehalem Mountain appellations. Patricia Green cellars focus is to produce Pinot Noirs that show the distinct characteristics of the sites and vintage within the context of the wines.
