    May 17, 2019 - Willamette Valley May 2019; 5/17/2019-5/18/2019: Not crazy about SB but I could drink this on a sunny afternoon and feel just fine. High acid, neutral style, nicely balanced.

    April 1, 2019 - Though only $20, my expectations were high and equally well-met by this bottle. I can see why PG produces it every year and I will be on the lookout for future vintages. Very much as others ascribe here: a good selection of Kiwi-esque tropical and citrus flavors with snappy acidity and no burn from alcohol or unbalanced greenies. I can drink this anywhere along the fish-fowl-pork spectrum and be happy. 5+10+17+8= 90

    March 13, 2019 - Patricia Green Cellars Wine Tasting (St. John's): nice nose of kiwi, guava, gooseberry; pyrazines not prominent; very lively acidity; nice example of the not commonly planted Oregon Sauvignon Blanc

    March 11, 2019 - Cantaloupe, honeydew and lemon on the nose. Light bodied and effervescent on the palate. Not as aromatic as other Sauv Blancs you may have had. Same notes on the palate as the nose with a little bit of grapefruit added in. There's a textural quality here that I can't quite put my finger on -- not sure what process led to it, but there's something to it.

    October 5, 2018 - Oregon winery known for their pinots, but this sauv blanc is lovely. Grendel effect!

Full Pull

  • By Paul Zitarelli
    Full Pull Patty Green, 6/6/2018

    (Patricia Green Cellars Sauvignon Blanc) Hello friends. Jim Anderson – the first person I ever visited on my first Willamette Valley research trip for Full Pull almost a decade ago – recently visited the FP warehouse to pour through a series of stunners from the Patty Green lineup. As you’d expect, there’s extra poignancy tasting the 2016 and 2017 vintages, knowing that they’ll be the final vintages bearing Patty’s direct stamp (see here for a lovely In Memoriam from Oregon Wine Press). But even setting aside the emotional aspect of tasting these wines, the wines themselves are just beautiful, as they always have been. The main thrust of today’s offer is a wine we’ve only been able to offer once before, and that was the 2010 vintage way back in March 2013. It also happens to be Patricia Green Cellars most accessibly-priced single-vineyard wine, and that’s true at its $37 release tag, and even more so at our TPU price today: [Note: we’ll also have a bonus wine; a rare white from the Patty lineup.]Bonus wine, and one I have long coveted. Sauvignon Blanc is such a rarity in Oregon, which is a pity, because what few examples exist tend to be excellent, existing in this sweet spot between the Loire Valley and New Zealand. Patty’s was the first I ever had, and there’s nothing quite like first love. Release price is $24, so we have great pricing on this as well. It’s a blend of Estate, Oak Grove, and Oster Vineyards, it clocks in at 13.2% listed alc, and it begins with a nose of green papaya and passionfruit, mineral and fresh-mown grass. It has a just-right green edge, true to Sauvignon Blanc, and also carries plenty of SB’s signature rippin’ acidity. This is refreshing enough to glug and not think about, but my goodness, if you pay attention, there is plenty of complexity here, impressive for a grape not known for its intellectual heft.
