Patricia Green Cellars Wines
Patricia Green Cellars is in the Willamette Valley, were about two-thirds of Oregon’s wineries and vineyards are. Patricia Green Cellars 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. Patty Green makes wine from a variety of Willamette Valley sources, encompassing the two primary soil types in the region: sedimentary and volcanic. Pinot Noir in the US has become synonymous with the relative cool climate grape growing regions of Oregon.
Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Old Vine 2010
The Estate Old Vines shows a pure red fruit character that is just beautiful, with cranberry, pomegranate and sour cherry flavors complicated by a peppery, crimini mushroom note and a long, bright mineral-filled finish.
"The Pinot Noir Estate Old Vine adds a mineral/iron note to the aromatics along with earth notes, clove, rose petal, and black cherry. On the palate it reveals greater depth, concentration, and length than the regular bottling. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019. Veteran vigneron Patricia (Patty) Green was the original winemaker at Torii Mor before purchasing the old Autumn Wind Winery in 2000 along with partner Jim Anderson and renaming it Patricia Green Cellars. Current production stands at 10,000 cases with distribution in 20 states. All of the Patricia Green wines are fermented naturally, see about one-third new oak, and only Cadus barrels are used in the cellar. The wines are discussed in the order in which they were presented at the winery in July, 2009."-Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It, Now! |
The Willamette Valley is an old volcanic and sedimentary seabed that has been overlaid with gravel, silt, rock and boulders brought by the Missoula Floods from Montana and Washington between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago.
Relatively mild throughout the year, with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers. This temperate climate, combined with coastal marine influences, make the gentle growing conditions within the Valley ideal for cool climate grapes, including Pinot noir. Wine was made in Oregon in the 19th century already, when Italian and Swiss immigrants planted wine grapes and started bottling wine.
