The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate, sourced from some of the younger vines on the property, exhibits spice box and black raspberry aromas followed by an elegant, sweetly-fruited, smooth-textured wine in need of a bit more depth and concentration. Veteran vigneron Patricia (Patty) Green was the original winemaker at Torii Mor before purchasing the old Autumn Wind Winery in 2000 along with partner Jim Anderson and renaming it Patricia Green Cellars. Current production stands at 10,000 cases with distribution in 20 states. All of the Patricia Green wines are fermented naturally, see about one-third new oak, and only Cadus barrels are used in the cellar. In 2009 Green and Anderson’s lengthy experience paid off as they were able to get the maximum out of what the vintage offered. (JM)
Deep ruby. Cherry-cola, dark berries, violet and spices on the nose, with a subtle herbal quality and a touch of cracked pepper. Dense but energetic, offering powerful black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that are firmed by dusty minerals. Tannins build on the finish, which is long, sappy and well-focused. A few years of bottle age should be beneficial to this wine. (JR)
