Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($50) Deep yellow. Highly complex nose melds lemon drop, iodine and minerals, plus a suggestion of redcurrant. Very firmly structured but not hard, with terrific nerve and lift to the fruit. Firm acidity and intriguing hints of minerals and flowers leaven the wine's sweetness. At 3.3, this has the lowest pH of these 2005s. At once juicy and mouthfilling on the very long finish, which throws off hints of nutmeg and smoke. Conveys a strong impression of soil character.

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.
