Welcome to the weekend! I am starting off with the 2015 Patricia Green Cellars Balcombe Vineyard Pinot Noir. The Balcombe Vineyard is located toward the top of the Dundee Hills facing south. Patricia Green Cellars believe this vineyard which is planted to the Pommard Clone is simply one of the best vineyards they work.

On the nose I am getting cranberry, raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, and forest floor.

Upon first sip the palate gives way to bright red fruit, tart cranberry, tart cherry, tart raspberry, vanilla, clove and forest soil with a minerality.

The wine is silky smooth to a medium body, medium acidity, medium to + smooth tannins that leads to a crisp long enjoyable finish. We are starting the weekend off right and can't wait to get into the meat of this weekend. Be safe, have fun and make it a great weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

First taste of the new 2013 vintage: smoke, sulfur, funk on top of a dark fruit nose. Soft dark fruit, plum/bacon/smoke, soft finish, very like a very good Cru Beaujolais. Interesting profile for a Pinot.

Balcombe and Balcombe 1B are two of my faves from Patty Green. 2011 more austere than most vintages. Going to age well.

JL Oregon tasting 9/12/17. $32. 471 cases. Red but darker berries and a bit of earthy notes on nose. Volcanic soil. Complex and weight and expressive on palate with good finish with minerals. Nice wine. Will age really well.
