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.

Dusty rose, violet, perfume, spice and cherry on nose with touch of barnyard and sea salt or marine. Blackberry and cherry in mouth with length plus some baking spice. Paired well with cacio e Pepe

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

A rich, dark cherry flavored Pinot Noir with a smooth, clean finish.

From Magnum......beautifully aged Pinot with mushroom and forest floor nose, and a complex flavor profile comprised of rhubarb, strawberries and violets among other things...really good

This select Pinot has terrific fruit, is well structured and finishes well. So fresh and Burgundian.
