Patricia Green ranks among the regions iconic producers like Ken Wright, John Paul (Cameron Winery) and Mike Etzel (Beaux Freres) as visionaries that took the Willamette Valley from relative obscurity to a world-class wine region. Patricia worked for 10 years as a winemaker and manager for properties like Adelsheim and Torii Mor before starting her namesake winery in 2000 with partner Jim Anderson. The winery's focus is single vineyard Pinot Noir and is widely considered one of the top 10 producers in Oregon. Patricia's dedication to quality is second to none. In addition to the fruit from their estate vineyard in Ribbon Ridge, she collaborates with growers all over the valley to source the best fruit. This allows the winery to produce up to 20 different wines per vintage, each one a distinct expression of the Willamette's diverse terroir. The quality here is truly remarkable, putting Burgundy and top new world Pinot on its heels.

Their flagship bottling is this 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir, a multi-vineyard blend that serves as a perfect introduction to the house style and a phenomenal value. The Reserve Pinot is a barrel selection from all of the single vineyard lots, slightly different every vintage, offering a glimpse of the years quality as a whole. Medium bodied and easy to love, it over delivers with rounded dark cherry, red raspberry fruit and pleasing savory, herbal aromas. The vintage's high quality really shows in the wine's extra level of depth and long, lingering finish. This is a knockout Pinot Noir to buy by the case and drink for the next 5-7 years. For pairings, the little noticeable oak and bright acid make it particularly food friendly, so experiment with all things pork, duck, fatty fish and root vegetables. Plus, it'll sing with a simple, weeknight roast chicken and a ten minute chill.
