2018 Patton Valley 'Fu-Mei' Pinot Noir Blanc Oregon
Man, what a wine! Taste after taste this delivers a wide open range of brightness, richness, complexity, and depth. It truly is spectacular. The nose starts with a cedar spice, green tea, rose petals, and satsuma kind of razzmatazz, and becomes more citrus driven as it persists. Is that a Dreamsicle? Yes, yes it is, and more. The palate is first juicy, and then bright and lively, and finally a kind of baritone note at the end of a libretto that holds and holds. There’s apricot, apple, tangerine, ginger, and something like a salted caramel cookie here, and a refreshing saline finish. It sounds like a lot, and it is. Best enjoyed over the course of a long evening now, or for the next 11 years.
