Review:

This is seriously good juice for the buck, loaded with fruit and rich in texture. Kudos to Patty and Jim for keeping the price more than fair.

Recommended Best Buy!

The Reserve program has evolved from an every-so-often produced bottling to the mainstay of our production. This bottling allows us to accomplish two things that are very important to us as a winery. The first thing is that it allows us to use barrels from our vineyard designated sites that we think donít represent what we think that siteís profile truly is. Sometimes that is based on vine age, clonal material or location within the site. This allows our vineyard designated wines to be true expressions of the site on a year in and year out basis. Secondly, it allows us to create a blended wine that has a degree of consistency to it each vintage that is of high-quality and will retail for less than $25. We are wine consumers just as we are winemakers and we understand the absolute necessity for good quality Pinot at more of an every day sort of price.

One of the best value Oregon Pinots noirs for 15 years, fresh and mouthwatering with sweet black berry/cherry fruit flavors and Patty's trademark full-bodied style. There's a bit of very appealing field herbs and earth in the mix and a smooth silky finish. It's ready to drink but is so well balanced I'd treat it like a higher priced wine and cellar it for 2-5 years. - Jean

One of the best under $25 Oregon Pinots each year, Patty Green and her team have perfected their "best representation of the vintage as a whole" as Patty puts it.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

There are wonderful sweet, flowery aromatics, the wine is purely red-fruited with Griotte cherries and Oregon strawberries making up the mid-palate and there is just enough acidity and tannin to give the wine balance, depth and length.

The 2008 Reserve Pinot noir is meant to drink well when young (and it does) but there is no doubt that this will be a surprisingly age-worthy bottle of Pinot Noir. This is a wine that is worth stocking up on for every day enjoyment and some medium-term cellaring. A classic, true-blue Oregon Pinot Noir!

The Reserve program has evolved from an every-so-often produced bottling to the mainstay of our production. Starting at 200 cases in 2002 we ramped this up to 2,350 cases in 2007 and bottled just over 1,800 cases (along with 200 cases of 375 ML bottles) again in 2008.

This bottling allows us to accomplish two things that are very important to us as a winery. The first thing is that it allows us to use barrels from our vineyard designated sites that we think donít represent what we think that siteís profile truly is.

Secondly, it allows us to create a blended wine that has a degree of consistency to it each vintage that is of high-quality and will retail for less than $30. We are wine consumers just as we are winemakers and we understand the absolute necessity for good quality Pinot at more of an every day sort of price.

In our minds this is far and away the best bottling of this we have ever done. The mix of wines is sensational incorporating barrels from stalwart vineyards such as Balcombe, Whistling Ridge, Winderlea, Ana, Croft and Ana into regular sites such as Cattrall, Croft-Williamson, Bradley, Four Winds and Estate. In fact, more than 60% of this wine comes from vines planted prior to 1990. To us this wine is a perfect reflection of this vintage.

The wine is composed as follows Ana Vineyard 9.5%
Balcombe Vyd 2.3%
Bradley Vyd 23.4%
Cattrall Vyd 10.7%
Croft Vyd 13.1%
Esate Vyd 13.9%
Four Winds Vyd 13.1%
Croft Williamson Vyd 3.2%
Winderlea Vyd. 1.2%
Whistling Ridge Vyd 7.1%
Miscellaneous Barrels 2.3%

The approximate break down of clones would be 61.2% Pommard
16.2% Wadensvil
7.3% Dijon 777
15.3% Dijon 115

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Patricia Green Cellars Reserve Pinot Noir 07 is an AMAZING value.

From the winery:

The Reserve bottling is comprised of wine from the 25 year-old vines of Bradley Vineyard (55%), the 25 year-old LIVE certified Wadensvil clone Pinot Noir from Cattrall Vineyard outside of Amity (8%), both the young plantings and some of the older sections of Eason Vineyard (14%), barrels from a 1997 planting in the Estate Vineyard (4%), the Dijon clones (115 and 777) from Four Winds Vineyard (7%) and 3 barrels from the Pommard clone block planted in 1974 at Goldschmidt Vineyard (12%).

The wine is an excellent example of what Oregon Pinot Noir can be. This shows the nice qualities of the vintage, you get a clear sense of the house style and the wine, while eminently drinkable young, should persist for awhile given the type of material that it is constructed from. This is brightly fruited with great gobs of cherries and raspberries in the fore-palate. There is lots of sweetness in the mid-palate and just enough structure toward the back to pull it together and give it length.
