94 points Wine Spectator: "Open-textured, inviting and focused, layering ripe currant, blueberry and spice flavors on a well-mannered frame, coming together harmoniously on the long and expressive finish. Stylish and impressive. Best from 2016 through 2022." - H.S.

2010 Tanzer - 93 points - Bright red berry and potpourri aromas show impressive clarity and intensity, picking up subtle notes of cola and Asian spices with air. Juicy and precise on the palate, off ering incisive black raspberry and bitter cherry fl avors and showing a seamless texture. Finishes with excellent focus and length, leaving spicy berry notes behind. - J.R.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The flagship of the portfolio is the 2009 Pinot Noir Lorna Marie, a selection of the four best barrels in the cellar. Sweetly fruited and forward, this is a savory, pleasure-bent Pinot with excellent length and balance that should drink well for 8-10 years, unusual in this vintage. - Jay Miller

The 2009 Lorna Marie is the richest, fullest flavored so far of Patton Valley's top Pinot noir cuvee. The exotic spice in the nose is a signature of Patton Valley wines, along with dried flowers, cherries, pipe tobacco and earth. In the mouth the wine is round and rich. Red fruits, cherry and currant fruit are accented by sweet spices and a hint of creaminess. - Jean

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Advocate 92 points!

Wine Advocate - The 2008 Pinot Noir Lorna Marie is a blend of the six best barrels in the cellar aged in 33% new oak. It displays some extra aromatic complexity, a bit more grip and power on the palate, and will benefit from another 4-5 years in the cellar.

Monty Pitt and David Chen purchased their 72 acre parcel in 1995 and began planting in 1997. Their first vintage was 1999 and currently all the wines are estate bottled (in screw caps). Production stands at 3000 cases. Not surprisingly, Patton Valley’s 2008 collection is a step above the 2007s. - Jay Miller
