Patton Valley Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Patton Valley Vineyard
United States - Oregon - Willamette Valley

A bit of classic Oregon Pinot noir potpourri here with a nose of classic Rainier cherry, cola nut, fresh Summer berries, cocoa powder and a dash of savory spice. The palate is expressive and lively, with fresh fruits like boysenberry and raspberry, pipe tobacco, fines herbs, and a strain of tannin woven throughout that dashes and dances. Deceptive in its heft, this lingers and lolls on the palate gracefully.

2017 Patton Valley Pinot Noir Willamette Valley - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Light lurid red. Fresh, energetic and incisive on the highly perfumed, spice- and mineral-accented nose. In a nervy, graceful style, offering gently sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors that show very good concentration yet no obvious weight. Silky tannins sneak in late on the clinging finish, which leaves hints of white pepper and red fruit preserves behind. This graceful, entry-level Pinot delivers outstanding value. (aged for 10 months in 10% new French oak). - Josh Raynolds"

2014 Patton Valley Pinot Noir - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Pale red. Lively, sharply focused aromas of redcurrant and strawberry accented by white pepper and orange zest. Refreshingly brisk and racy on the palate, with weightless bitter cherry and red berry flavors taking a sweeter turn on the back half. This distinctly graceful Pinot finishes with very good lift and spicy cut, leaving berry skin and allspice notes behind."

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Bright, clean, crisply rendered raspberry fruit—nicely spiced—really shines here. This relatively modestly priced cuvée carries itself with style and elegance, still young, tight and tart, with plenty of medium-term aging potential."

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 90 Pts"Light, bright red. Pungent aromas of red and dark berries, with cola and anise accents adding complexity. Juicy and light on its feet, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla. Finishes tangy and long, with very good focus and cut."
