Winemaker Notes

There is simply no replacing well-farmed, older-vines. The nuances, texture and innate complexity that these older vines provide are not qualities that a winemaker can fake. You either have these older vines and are able to bring forth these positive elements or you don't. With Ana Vineyard these qualities make for incredible aromatics of rose petals, freshly cooked lamb, and earth toned red-spices. The texture is always graceful, at once being mouth-filling but never in an aggressive way. The finish is long, subtle and complete. In a vintage like 2009 where most things move toward the big, black and bold, Ana Vineyard retains the characteristics that we love so much about it which are the balance, freshness, subtlety and sexiness of the entire package. There is no mistaking that there is a wealth of intensity in this wine but it is red-fruited to the core in both the aromatic and flavor profiles. The mid-palate is appropriately sweet and viscous without being the least bit overdone and the finish is spicy, long, silky and complex. A classic bottling of Ana Vineyard. Hard to say how much will be produced as we have a host of options.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir Ana Vineyard comes from a site planted in 1978. Already complex aromatically with floral notes, exotic spices, incense, and red fruits, on the palate it is intense, velvety textured, and reveals excellent volume and length. It has enough well-concealed structure to drink well for a decade.

Image of winery
Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge district of Yamhill County on the 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of Pinot Noirs from far flung vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains, and the Eola Hills growing regions. We look to produce Pinot Noirs that show the distinctions of the sites we work with. All of the vineyards we either maintain or purchase fruit from are extremely well-tended sites that seek to grow the best fruit possible through rigorous attention to detail on every single vine. To ensure that our sites truly show the characteristics of the soil, micro-climate and clonal material none of them use irrigation.

In the winery the philosophy of attention to the smallest details is further extended all the way from the fermenting must to the final bottling process. All of our wines at all of their points of evolution are handled and manipulated as little as possible while being smelled and tasted on a regular basis. Our selection of barrels has been limited to one cooper noted for producing some of the best made Pinot Noir barrels in the world. As we produce as many as 15-16 different bottlings of Pinot Noir under our own label each vintage the decisions we make about the quality of every single barrel is quite rigorous ensuring that each bottling represents the best possible wine from each vineyard with which we work.

Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir

View all wine

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half organic. While the valley technically claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both power and grace.
