Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Patton Valley Vineyard Pinot Noir exhibits a nose of smoke, bing cherry pie, damp forest floor, clove and allspice. The wine enters the mouth gently, round and smooth with bright red fruits. On the mid-palate it expands with red and black cherries, mysterious and complex balsamic notes, sweet vanilla and spices. The heart of the wine is a racy acidic core, wrapped with rich cream, that accelerates across the palate. The wine finishes with lingering firm, yet polished tannins, and flavors reminiscent of baking chocolate and bramble. The wine's elegance, layered complexity, and movement on the palate are indicative of the cool vintage and are hallmarks of classic Oregon Pinot Noir. Approachable now, the aromatics and layers of flavors should become more complex with cellaring for 7 years or more.

Critical Acclaim

"Patton Valley lies outside all of the Willamette Valley's six new sub-AVAs, not far from Yamhill-Carlton. This estate wine has an ethereal scent of fresh raspberries, grounded with a whiff of tree bark and earth. The flavors remain fresh and exuberant — as if red cherries would burst from the glass were it not for the earthy savory checking the fruit. It has the structured, savory presence for veal with truffles. "
