This wine has some weight and density that belies its price point but at the same time has a beautiful red-fruited tone to it. There is also a bit more use of new barrels on this wine if for no other reason than that these wines were more than capable of handling that sort of structural and flavor component without it intruding aggressively into the nature of the wine. There will, of course, be some spice and barrel tannin, but this wine has way more than enough guts and stuffing to handle the 33% new barrel with 51% of the barrels being completely neutral there is a balancing yin to the yang.

Offers refinement and presence, with expressive raspberry and pomegranate flavors, laced with fresh violet and orange blossom notes, building richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2027. 4,975 cases made.

The winery's reserve is actually the low-priced, entry-level wine among close to two dozen Pinots from Patricia Green each vintage. The most widely produced as well as the most affordable, it brings a nice mix of blackberry and cherry fruit, ripe tannins and a streak of graphite. Though the grapes were sourced from throughout the Willamette Valley, the wine retains its focus and finishes with a hint of smoky coffee.
