($55) Bright medium yellow. Yellow plum, pineapple, peach and flowers on the musky, aromatic nose; much fruitier than the Hudson sample that preceded it. Supple, sweet, aromatic and mouthfilling, with juicy acids perking up the flavors of mirabelle and peppermint. Not at all an outsized wine but has no shortage of volume. Finishes rather backward and serious, with a solid spine and good spicy persistence. I picked up a smoky note here, not unlike that shown by the Durell example, as well as a tannic edge.

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.
