Patricia Green Ribbon Ridge Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
Dry farming of the vineyard and these younger vines, even at 19-21 years of vine age, are still under a bit of duress. This leads to small, tight clusters and fairly thick skins. This gives the wine its trademark dark, almost purplish color with a hefty and dense structure. This can be a bit savage in nature when youthful but it comes around surprisingly fast and, of course, is good for many years.
Lithe and delicately layered, with expressive raspberry and pomegranate flavors that take on orange peel and spiced cinnamon notes on the way to polished tannins. Drink now through 2028. 705 cases made.
