Patricia Green Cellars Freedom Hill Vineyard Dijon 115 Pinot Noir
This wine is uniquely dark in our long line of 2013 wines and while color, flavor and texture are not necessarily linked in Pinot Noirs this one tastes and feels the way it looks. This has a strong, black-fruited tone to it with herbaciousness and spices mingling in for complexity. The tannins are sticky and firm. This wine will reward years worth of agin but will also be appreciated by fans of intense and muscular Pinots in its youth.
Vinous Review: 93 points
Dark red. Powerful cherry, raspberry and Asian spice aromas are complicated by mocha and fresh flowers. Fleshy red and dark berry liqueur flavors turn spicier and livelier with air, showing impressive clarity thanks to a bright mineral quality. Finishes silky and sweet, with excellent persistence and an echo of juicy raspberry.
