Patricia Green, Dundee Hills, Balcombe Block 1B, Pinot Noir 2001 (3L)
broken wax capsule top; winemaker signed bottle
93 points Wine Enthusiast, no tasting notes
This is the most popular wine at Patricia Green Cellars. The Wine Club exists because of it. This block happens to produce wine utterly like anything else from the rest of the vineyard. It is darker, much more structured, more earth bound and deeper than the much higher toned fruit in the regular Balcombe Vineyard bottling. This block has been this different since our first time working with this site in 1997. Nothing has changed.
