Patricia Green Cellars Balcombe Vineyard Pinot noir 2018
93 points Vinous: "Fragrant red and blue fruit, floral and Asian spice scents show fine definition and pick up a hint of smokiness with air. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering boysenberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors and cinnamon and allspice flourishes. Sneaky tannins frame a very long, penetrating finish that echoes the blue fruit and spice notes. All whole clusters and 5% new oak."
Balcombe Vineyard is one of the best vineyards Patty and Jim work with, and every year it produces wines of terrific quality. The vineyard is located toward the top of the Dundee Hills on Breyman Orchard Road. It was planted in 1990 and they have worked with the fruit every year since 1997. The two wines they make from its fruit are always among their most popular.
