Food Pairings for Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve
A Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley always sparks my interest, since most California Pinots tend toward too much sugar and alcohol to satisfy. At a recent dinner, my friend spotted a bottle of Patricia Greene '07 Reserve on the wine list and ordered it. It immediately offered up that trademark earth-and-cherries aroma that I crave. Better still, it continued to open up as we swirled, sipped and supped, yielding more subtle fruit and just a hint of smoke along the way, ending in a smooth finish. Our meals were quite different -- duck for him, sea bass for me. The wine paired nicely with both, and we enjoyed it to the last well-balanced drop. A very reasonably priced example of a Willamette Valley Pinot that I will certainly look for again!
