Patton Valley Rose
Patton Valley Vineyard
United States - Oregon - Willamette Valley

The Patton Valley Vineyard is a wonderful slice of grape growing heaven, right on top of a little outcropping in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range at an elevation of 300-500 ft. The vineyard has ample sun, cool breezes, and slopes to every aspect with a single soil type called Laurelwood. It's your basic paradise.

There’s really nothing like this wine. Every year the subtle nuance is like a siren call. Strawberry patch, kefir lime zest, orange blossom, and tangerine all dance and sing in a crisp chorus of freshness, and wild vibrancy. There’s never enough wine in a single bottle to pick out all of the detail, unfortunately, and so we persist.

vinous logo"Light, vivid pink. Lively red berry and orange zest aromas are complemented by a subtle floral topnote. Silky and focused on the palate, offering taut red currant and strawberry flavors that deepen on the back half. Finishes very long and nervy, with repeating red fruit character and a late jolt of spiciness. - Josh Raynolds"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Grown, picked and vinified deliberately for rosé, this low alcohol, pale copper wine rewards your attention. Though neither forward nor fruity, it's loaded with lovely details. It starts with aromatic notes of rose petals, lemon zest and white pepper. Then, it fills in the palate with juicy light berry flavors. The length and detail are impressive. - PAUL GREGUTT"

tanzer iwc 89 pts"Light orange-pink. Vibrant, tightly focused aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and white flowers, with a subtle peppery overtone. Firm and tangy in the mouth, with energetic red berry flavors complemented by zesty minerality. Finishes bright and linear, with resonating spiciness and good tangy cut."
