This Freedom Hill Pinot Noir has the deep pigmentation, floral aromatics, intense mid-palate sweetness and structured finishing tannins that provide the wine with enough fortitude to hold the fruit sweetness well in check. This balances at a very high level. For all the dry extract-laden fruit here there is a wealth of acidity and tannin that are actually the dominant forces in the wine and ensure that this is a focused, smart and incredibly delicious Pinot Noir. This has so much to it that it will drink well almost immediately but has an upside that is clearly well more than a decade away. Winery Notes
Freedom Hill Vineyard is the only Pinot Noir vineyard Patricia Green Cellars sources fruit from that is not in one of the smaller sub-AVAs of the Willamette Valley. It sits solely in the larger Willamette Valley AVA. While technically located in the Eola Hills, this site is just outside of the southwestern border of the Eola-Amity AVA in the town of Dallas. Historically, Freedom Hill Vineyard was known on labels like Panther Creek Cellars, Ken Wright Cellars, Bethel Heights Vineyard and St. Innocent Winery. It has a reputation for producing some of the largest scale and most structured Pinot Noirs in the valley. As phyloxera grabbed hold of the original plantings, the re-plantings and additions to the vineyard were put in on the common single-wire vertical trellis system that is most common in the Northern Willamette Valley. This has allowed for wines that still possess great intensity born from the Marine Sedimentary soil known as Bellpine. The finished wines currently flourish with tannin structure that is richer and more complex than wines from the early years.
