Patton Valley 2015 Fu-Mei Blanc Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

Editors' Choice

Though the name may strike some as a bad pun (recalling fumé), the winery explains it's Chinese for “rich and beautiful,” honoring the mother of one of the owners. This white version of Pinot Noir has a chunky mouthfeel, but it's nuanced with delicate citrus rind, flower and honeycomb details. It continues to develop as it opens, offering a layered mix of citrus and stone fruit balanced with hints of fresh-picked herbs. Paul Gregutt
