Notes from Patricia Green Cellars:
"Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge AVA of the Willamette Valley on a 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends and business partners, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of vineyard designated Pinot Noirs from several vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Willamette Valley with a particular emphasis over the years on Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and the Chehalem Mountain appellations.
At a larger level the philosophy of the winery is fairly simple:
Do what needs to be done. There are certain approaches and techniques that will obviously be applied, however the intensity of those actions is fluid. That fluid nature would extend to nearly every aspect of the winemaking.
This clone seems to be a perfect fit in this location, yielding robust berry fruit further defined with sappy acids. Juicy citrus flavors underscore the berries, and despite its youth it's a tangy and quite appealing wine, with another decade of aging potential."
