Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This bottling is amazingly red-fruited given the blacker nature of the regular Estate bottling. The pigmentation is far lighter and the tannins are finer and smoother throughout the wine. This is a harmonious and drop-dead beautiful bottling of Pinot. The texture is silky yet has a core of supple tannins that suggest long-term cellaring as a possibility. The red raspberry core is infused with a quartz-y sort of minerality to it and the finish is amazingly long. Again, this is a wine based on balance and refinement so even within a warm vintage this makes is mark by being discrete and feminine.

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

Medium red color. Strongly perfumed bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, candied cherry and Asian spices, with a floral element emerging with air and carrying through on the palate. The winersquo;s vivid red berry and rose pastille flavors are nicely framed by fine-grained tannins. Graceful, understated, spicy wine with a long finish and no rough edges whatsoever.

Vivid medium red. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas are complemented by deeper notes of anise and black cardamom. Sappy and precise, with deep raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a sexy rose pastille quality. Fine-grained tannins add shape and grip to the long, spicy, energetic finish. Irsquo;d bet this very well-balanced wine will reward at least another five years of aging.

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. Green describes that as ldquo;wild fruit, not domesticated.rdquo;
