2008 Patricia Green Cellars Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $29. Blended from wines in the cellar that are a cut above the Oregon designation but don’t fit into a vineyard or special bottling. · Appealing core of dark berries and dark stone fruits with hints of cola and citrus. Plenty of oak overshadows the fruit. Soft in the mouth with brisk acidity. Decent. Reviewed March 2, 2011
