Patricia Green Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #33174 (In Stock)

A crisp, complex, Sauvignon the finishes dry and mineral.

"Pungent orange, pear and floral scents are complemented by white pepper and honey nuances that build in the glass. Juicy, dry and sharply focused, offering bitter orange pith and quince flavors that slowly flesh out and deepen on the back half. Spicy and smooth on the finish, which hangs on with very good, minerally tenacity."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2016 Product #33147 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2016 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2016

Note that this is already SOLD OUT at the winery and won't last long here. This has been one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir for years, but in 2016 it really soars. It's a blend of more forward barrels from vineyards in Ribbon Ridge, the Chehalem Mountains, the Dundee Hills and Freedom Hill. It's ready right now and will age much longer than you'd expect from a wine at this price point.  As Jim wrote about the 2015, “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!!

“Spice-tinged raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by cola, floral and smoky mineral notes. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering energetic red berry flavors and suggestions of rose pastille and blood orange that build with air. Vibrant and precise in style, delivering solid finishing cut, interwoven tannins and impressive, spicy persistence.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2016 Product #33148 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2016 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2016

What’s the greatest vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley?  For years the most common answer would have been Seven Springs or Shea.  But today the 88 acres of vines planted on Freedom Hill, just outside Dallas, Oregon, is in contention for that honor.  As winemaker Jim Anderson says, this is “almost Eola-Amity,” sharing the western side of the AVA’s marine sedimentary soils but escaping some of the cold air that flows inland through the Van Duzer Corridor every afternoon.  Which means Freedom Hill Pinot Noir has the perfect blend of sedimentary soil vivacity and energy and warm site richness and power.

Jim Anderson and Patricia Green got their first fruit from Freedom Hill in vintage 2012, and they made what is clearly a benchmark interpretation of this great site.  In 2016, the wine blends fruit from blocks of Pommard, Dijon 115 and Coury clones of Pinot Noir and layers in a big dose of whole cluster spice and structure and about 25% new French oak. Clear, pure, black raspberry fruit plus notes of licorice, violets, and cola show on the nose and palate and the finish is long, persistent, and nicely structured.  Delicious with duck or mushrooms today and improving for a decade at least.

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Lia's Vineyard 2014 Product #30671 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Lia's Vineyard 2014 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Lia's Vineyard 2014

Lia's straddles the volcanic and sedimentary divide in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, with volcanic soils at the top of the vineyard transitioning to marine sediments below.  Complex soils benefit from complexity in the vineyard, so Lia's is planted to Pommard in volcanic soils, Dijon 115 in sedimentary dirt, and a sliver of rarely seen Mariafeld Clone growing in the transition zone in the middle of the vineyard.  This is the first vintage Patty and Jim have had access to the Mariafeld Clone, and it took an outstanding wine to a new level.

In 2013, this was one of the more tightly wound of Patty's wines, showing a peak of pleasure on release but tons of promise down the road.  In 2014, it's MUCH more generous and compelling right now but still has plenty of cellar life ahead.  As Patty's winery notes say, "The Mariafeld, Dijon 115 and Pommard lends a spicy note to the aromatics, a noticeable lift of red fruit and brightness in the mid-palate and a sturdier base of tannins. If there is a single vineyard Pinot Noir that we make that has more immediate appeal while still having down-the-road sort of chops this has to be it. This has forward, sweet dark fruit, quite a lot of texture and just enough finishing tannin to pull it all in at the end."

"Brilliant red. Sexy, spice-laced red berry and cherry scents are complemented by suggestions of cola, potpourri and smoky minerals. Silky, seamless and lively, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that tighten up slowly and become spicier with air. Delivers a serious punch but comes off lithe, finishing with powerful, fruity thrust, strong tenacity and smooth tannins that add structure." Vinous 92

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Estate Old Vines 2015 Product #32035 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Estate Old Vines 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Estate Old Vines 2015

The late Patty Green and her partner/winemaker, Jim Anderson, are all about getting site into bottle.  They make 20+ wines featuring unique vineyards and clones from sites across the Willamette Valley.  And they make 4 different wines from their own, 30 acre, vineyard in Ribbon Ridge.  This bottling features the oldest vines on the property, five different blocks of Pommard Clone Pinot Noir planted on their own roots in five different blocks.  

"One-third whole clusters and 8% new French oak. Deep, lurid red. Sexy red berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas are complemented by subtle cola and candied rose notes. Silky, smooth and penetrating on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Seamless and densely packed yet lively as well, finishing with strong red fruit thrust and velvety tannins that arrive late."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"Expressive and beautifully built, with raspberry and rose petal aromas and plush, structured flavors of cherry, spiced cinnamon and dark tea that build power. Shows a slight bite of tannins toward the finish. Drink now through 2023."Wine Spectator 93 points

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015 Product #32037 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015

In some ways, this is the partner to the Estate Old Vines Pinot.  Where that showcases old-vine Pommard on Ribbon Ridge's talc-like marine sediments, Durant is all about very old-vine Pommard (42 years) growing on Dundee Hills' red volcanic soils.  As Patty and Jim write, "These now monster vines were planted back in 1973 making them some of the oldest vines in Oregon. This wine knows exactly what it wants to be. This is finesse, subtleness, elegance and discreet balance all backed up by a sneaky and looming firmness that comes on in the back of the wine. Only older vines make wines like this. This is not a wine that needs to make a dramatic entrance because all the work is done on the back end."

With just a touch of whole cluster and little new oak, this is a wildly in tense and complex follow-up to 2014's 93 point (Vinous) edition.  Dark and chewy, it layers black fruit, lavender, melted licorice, rose oil, meat juice and iron aromas and flavors on the nose and palate.  The energy builds through a finish that's long, deep, and mouthwatering, leaving tangy cherry, floral and smoke flavors lingering. 

"(20% whole clusters and 8% new French oak) Limpid ruby-red. Highly aromatic red fruit, potpourri and Asian spice scents, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy, lithe and precise on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out slowly with aeration. Delivers a suave blend of power and elegance and finishes with resonating spiciness, harmonious tannins and outstanding clarity and floral-driven persistence." Vinous (Raynolds) 94 points

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

 

"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

Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Durant 2014 Product #33187 (In Stock)

"(20 percent whole clusters and aged in one-third new oak) Dark red. Intense, smoke-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry pit, spicecake and rhubarb carry a powerful floral overtone. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering energetic dark fruit, rose pastille and cola flavors that pick up energy with air. Closes on a bitter cherry note, delivering impressive, nervy thrust, lingering floral character and sneaky tannins that fold effortlessly into the energetic fruit. I really like this wine's marriage of power and vivacity." Vinous 93
