Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Product #31758 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015

This has been one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir for years, but in 2015 it really soars.  This year 75% of the barrels came from sedimentary soils in Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountain AVAs, 15% from Freedom Hill and 15% from volcanic soils in the Dundee Hills.  It’s genuinely lush and a bit showy now with opulent aromas and flavors of crushed black raspberry, dark cherries, exotic flowers, smoke and damp earth.  Mouthfilling and showing a glyceryl richness, but with vivid acids, fine tannins, and no excess of weight.  As Jim and Patty say, “There are seriously great bones here and this wine will stand up to many, many much higher priced bottlings… In short, this wine is a smoking deal!!

"Deep red. Expansive red berry and floral pastille scents and flavors show impressive energy and pick up a hint of smokiness as the wine opens up. Smooth and fleshy but lively as well; a late jolt of white pepper adds spicy bite. Generous but vibrant in character, finishing very long and sweet, with gentle tannins lending shape and subtle grip. This wine delivers exceptional bang for the buck."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Dijon 115 2015 Product #31723 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Dijon 115 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Dijon 115 2015

Patty and Jim make 4 wines from their 5 blocks of Freedom Hill fruit – the full vineyard blend and then small bottlings showcasing each of the three main clones planted there:  Pommard, Coury and Dijon 115.  This comes from vines planted in 2004 and shows about 60% whole cluster fermentation and about 20% new oak.

Dijon 115 is all about aromatics, and you’ll find plenty to sniff and savor here!  Lots of dark black fruit (cherry, raspberry) plus crushed flowers, mocha, licorice and sweet spice.  On the palate, there’s plenty of dark fruit and a captivating strawberry leaf herbal note with more spice, earth and floral notes for complexity.  Plenty of texture on the mid-palate and then a firm, powerful, finish with firm tannins under a finishing gush of fruit and spice.  As Patty and Jim say, “This wine will reward with a long life of aging, but will also be appreciated by fans of intense and muscular Pinots in its youth.”

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Dijon 115 2014 Product #31722 (In Stock)

 

"Limpid ruby-red. Raspberry liqueur, potpourri and Asian spice aromas, accompanied by suggestions of cola and incense. Stains the palate with vibrant red fruit and floral pastille flavors; peppery spice and mineral notes provide lift. Silky, even tannins build slowly and evenly on a strikingly long, mineral-laced finish that leaves notes of raspberry and allspice behind. There's impressive energy here for a wine from a ripe vintage."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard Dijon 115 is the same composition as the 2013, but with one-third new oak. It has an appealing bouquet with dark berry fruit, bell pepper and touches of brine, something very marine-like coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with that bell pepper note coming through on the entry from the stem addition, lending a Loire-like character to this Pinot Noir. I appreciate the tension here, a rather uncompromising, yet compelling Pinot Noir with wonderful salinity towards the finish. Intellectual as well as sensorial, afford this 2-3 years in your cellar."Wine Advocate 93 points
