($55) Bright medium yellow. Superrich aromas of candied yellow fruits, lemon drop, roasted grain, smoke and vanilla. Large-scaled, broad and impressively fine-grained; this really fills the mouth but bright acids give it a light touch. A leesy quality adds complexity. This seems every bit as rich as the superb 2004, and also calls for 12 to 18 months of patience.

A harmoniously balanced Chardonnay with all of the textbook Alder Springs lushness. A dead ringer for the wine in barrel. Mineral, anise and pear aromas. A feeling of lemon chiffon on the palate with a hint of round nuttiness.

About This Producer


Since 1988, Patz & Hall has set a standard for Chardonnays and Pinots that epitomize poise and finesse. The winery is a partnership of four individuals - Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moss and Heather Patz - all of whom are veterans in the production of fine wine. Between them, they have made wine at Flora Springs, Honig Cellars, Far Niente, Marimar Torres, Spring Mountain and Cain Vineyard. They source from regions ranging from the Santa Lucia Highlands to Mendocino, and prime areas in between. The wines skillfully maintain the intricate and graceful dance between substance and balance, power and elegance - the key characteristics of world-class Pinot Noir.
