Patricia Green Estate Old Vine Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
From vines planted between 1984 and 1997, the 2021 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard Old Vine moves to a savory realm. Initially the aromatics are more reserved, but it has an intense texture, with great structure, significant persistence, and mineral accents throughout. It's long on the palate and demands 3-5 years of cellar time. Mouthwatering and long, it's an incredible wine to drink 2026-2046. It seems insane that this wine and the Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard are from the same vineyard.
This wine's gorgeous red fruit characteristics are marked by a strawberry popsicle aroma and flavors like sweet Boyne raspberries and tangy Marasca cherries. Throw in a bit of mint and black tea for good measure. Look for modest acidity and chewy tannins.
