Patricia Green Balcombe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Balcombe Vineyard is located toward the top of the Dundee Hills on Breyman Orchard Rd. at the southern end of the Dundee Hills and this is certainly the most quintessential Dundee Hills Pinot Noir that they make. Ever since we first bottled it in 2000 this wine has been about how the texture and the flavor co-mingle to deliver the experience that is this wine. This bottling is done with 20% whole cluster fermentation so, this still displays the natural Dundee Hill-ness that is the hallmark of this wine but the whole clusters provide structure, more aromatic depth and complexity as well as a more focused and precise view of this site and appellation. This will be a superstar for people who enjoy the sensual side of Oregon Pinot Noir.
