Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Estate 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Full red. Pretty, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, rose petal, Asian spices and musky underbrush. Supple, silky and nicely balanced, with an alluring sweetness to the intense red fruit flavors. Becomes spicier in the middle palate and shows excellent clarity. Really spreads out on the spicy, focused, very long finish.

Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge district of Yamhill County on the 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of Pinot Noirs from far flung vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains, and the Eola Hills growing regions. We look to produce Pinot Noirs that show the distinctions of the sites we work with. All of the vineyards we either maintain or purchase fruit from are extremely well-tended sites that seek to grow the best fruit possible through rigorous attention to detail on every single vine. To ensure that our sites truly show the characteristics of the soil, micro-climate and clonal material none of them use irrigation. Read less

Very expressive nose of rose petal floral popuri, raspberries and wild strawberry, musk and slight herbaciousness. Flavors of raspberries, red currant and earth are upfront. Floral, herbs, bitter endive flavors show in the mid palate. Very smooth sliky mouth feel, shows nice balance. I think this wine will become even more integrated and balanced in 3 years.
