Patricia Green Reserve Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This wine has some weight and density that belies its price point but at the same time has a beautiful red-fruited tone to it. There is also a bit more use of new barrels on this wine if for no other reason than that these wines were more than capable of handling that sort of structural and flavor component without it intruding aggressively into the nature of the wine. There will, of course, be some spice and barrel tannin, but this wine has way more than enough guts and stuffing to handle the 33% new barrel with 51% of the barrels being completely neutral there is a balancing yin to the yang.
