Patricia Green Volcanic Pinot Noir 2017
Winemaker Notes :
From the Dundee Hills one should expect sweetness of fruit in the mid-palate combined with a variety of spices common to Pinot Noir, but perhaps most decidedly is the nature of the texture. The wines from this region should have a remarkable silky nature with satin-y tannins that allow the fruit to linger. This bottling is a wine truly born of volcanic soils that shows all of these elements in spades and is the baseline for all our Dundee Hill bottlings.

Wine SpectatorVibrant yet graceful, featuring expressive raspberry and tart cherry aromas and spirited orange peel, spice box and dark tea accents that take on complexity toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027.
Wine EnthusiastDerived from an assortment of Dundee Hills vineyards, this pays tribute to the Jory soils of the AVA. Strong mineral accents keep a tight focus on brambly cherry flavors. The barrel aging, which was minimal given the wine's early release, adds just a touch of caramel.
