"Highly Recommended. Precise and lively, with tension, offering layered and vibrant cherry, river stone and orange peel flavors that take on richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 242 cases made."

"Derived from an assortment of Dundee Hills vineyards, this pays tribute to the Jory soils of the AVA. Strong mineral accents keep a tight focus on brambly cherry flavors. The barrel aging, which was minimal given the wine's early release, adds just a touch of caramel."
"The Volcanic bottling takes wine from select barrels of three Dundee Hill vineyard sites to show off what Patricia Green considers to be the best, most positive and classic traits that this appellation has to offer. The Dundee Hills’ Pinot Noirs are about richness, sweet fruit with soft tannins. This wine will show the dense, regal and structured red fruit of Durant, the sublime sweetness of Balcombe Vineyard and the silky elegance and complexity of Weber Vineyard. Certainly, this is a bit of a geeky exercise in winemaking but for those interested in the nature of terroir it is a pretty cool one.
Patricia Green Cellars is located in the Ribbon Ridge district of Yamhill County on the 52 acre estate purchased in 2000 by Patty Green and Jim Anderson. The winery, and thus the two friends, are noted for producing a tremendously broad selection of Pinot Noirs from far flung vineyards representing some of the better sites in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains, and the Eola Hills growing regions. All of the vineyards we either maintain or purchase fruit from are extremely well-tended sites that seek to grow the best fruit possible through rigorous attention to detail on every single vine. To ensure that our sites truly show the characteristics of the soil, micro-climate and clonal material none of them use irrigation." -Winery
