Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its Own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.
“End of the World as We Know It” –R.E.M.(words from the first stanza that no one actually knows)
According to the Mayans this is our last harvest. Given that, by the time you get this, there will be less than 60 days worth of time left for this planet’s survival (or something like that) we have been pretty amazed at how little noise the hard core END of the WORLDers have been. This Mayan calendar stuff has been around, well obviously since the Mayans, but in terms of Doomsday kind of stuff people have actually been on to this for some time. Don’t you think that whatever destructive/cleansing/cyclical/magnetic-pole-reversing force that is supposed to take us all out on December 21st of this year had to have been a little pissed when that guy, Harold Camping, predicted that the world would end sometime last May/October and he got all sorts of people to sell their houses and go on tour to talk about The End Times and whatnot? Who is out there plugging the Mayans case these days? We’re thinking that just out of spite this unknown and incredibly powerful force might just decide to actually get jiggy with it just to get back at the Camping-ites who were trying to steal the Mayans thunder in terms of end of the world predictions.
We’re a little distressed that the only thing we may get out of this potential end of the world threat is one really, really terrible John Cusack movie (honestly, not saying much the past several years). No one is packing up the Streamline and cruising down into Central America to await the Mayan equivalent of the Rapture? Seriously, we were kind of hoping for a slightly bigger deal than this. Clearly we don’t want any sort of the Hale-Bopp Comet sort of situations occurring but some general unease and plain old befuddled thinking and acting upon said thinking might be the least some of the more daft out there could do for us. Taking a quick survey of youtube videos related to any topic vaguely associated with the end of the world and the comments sections hold a bounty of folks who clearly have a bevy of tinfoil hats on hand.
Well, here at Patricia Green Cellars we are taking the whole end of the world before the end of the year thing and running with it. By the time you all receive this we will have, through the use of technology we brought back from the future, fermented, barrel-aged and bottled all of our 2012 wines. We didn’t have a lot of time to come up with labels for a lot of different bottlings so every wine will be going into our 2012 Mayan End of Days Cuvee. Sauvignon Blanc and all the Pinot Noir is going right in there. While we clearly won’t be able to beat those folks who make wine south of the equator or all that Beaujolais Nouveau that shows up at Thanksgiving to the punch as far as getting out a 2012 wine to satisfy the market for all things 2012 prior to December 21. So, while we will still have that soon-to-be far out of date 2011 Pinot Noir to taste when we open up in November, make sure you ask about the 2012 that we produced with future technology. That we got from aliens. And angels.
Here at Patricia Green Cellars we are attempting to be beyond innovative and take the step to the next level of not only winemaking but consciousness itself. We are predicting that this alien and future-technology crafted Pinot Noir will not only be the first release of 2012 wine from Oregon, but also serve as a portal through the December 21st End of Times deadline to another state of existence where we will all live in the mountains, at high altitude, and John Cusack will only be allowed in remakes of Say Anything and Grosse Pointe Blank (he’s already pre-ordered a case because he knows.)
Anyway, we wish we had bigger and better news for you all, but this is it. We made a wine that will help you survive The Apocalypse. No biggie. You can thank us later.
Please, let’s not talk about or think about the 2012 Red Sox.

Need help as to when to drink our wines take a look at the updated vintage chart under find our wines. It is completely current through 2010. Some categories on some of the wines have changed since the last time we posted (ex. many of the 2000 Pinot's have moved into the Drink category). Take a look and see where your stash of PGC wines is at in its evolutionary stage. We always appreciate input on older wines you have had recently so let us know.
