Pinot Noir, ‘Mysterious’, Patricia Green

For folks who have been following the winery for a few years you might recognize this moniker. We used this back in 2009 when received fruit that we simply could not turn down and we were in the same position in the summer of 2014 when we were offered the same fruit from the same vineyard. The only difference was whether we would like more of it than we got in 2009. Even in a vintage where space was at a premium we simply could not turn it down. We are contractually not allowed to tell you the name of this vineyard (seriously, we signed a non-disclosure agreement as part of the fruit contract). Suffice it to say this is one of the premier vineyards on the West Coast.  If you were in on the 2009 this is even a step up.

Tasting Notes

A very perfumed bouquet with blueberry and redcurrant aromas given lift by the new oak, a touch of sous-bois developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, quite sensual in the mouth thanks to its silkiness, very cohesive with cranberry, wild strawberry and a pinch of black pepper. It feels so lithe with a persistent finish that lasts 30 seconds.
