On the Oregundian Trail

Hey everyone, time for another review of a fabulous wine! This time it is about a great little place in the Dundee Hills of Oregon, called Patricia Green Cellars! If you have not been on the Oregundian Trail, I highly recommend a visit to PGC, although you will have to make a tasting appointment, unless you attend one of their tasting or open house events!

Of course after reading this tantalizing review of the 2006 Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Goldschmidt Vineyard Dundee Hills you may wish to just order up a couple of bottles anyway as they do ship. Unfortunately this particular wine is "Sold Out" as I believe a majority of the 06' vintage, but you may be able to find it in restaurants and wine bars. One thing about PGC is huge in my book and that is consistency!

Please don't just take my word for it, a certain Mr. Josh Raynolds who writes for the Stephen D. Tanzer's bimonthly International Wine Cellar publication also had high regard for this wine as well, but you have to pay to read his reviews. You can get my recommendations for a song!

Meanwhile back at the review, this wine features a light cerise core which fades effortlessly to the rim, and wafting up out of the glass aromas of raspberry and dried cherries with a hint of gentle spice co-mingling and spills across my palate in much the same way with length and precision and weighing in @ 13.5% alc. this wine has great balance. A wonderful Oregundian effort! Kudos once more to the whole team at PCG! This wine does have long term cellaring potential, and I would recommend holding any 2006 or 2007's for at least 5 years before opening, for maximum enjoyment. Of course if you can't wait that long drinking 2006 now will definitely be a rewarding experience. Until next time, cheers everyone!
