    ($50) Good deep red. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, nutmeg and earth, with hints of licorice and gingerbread. Rich, dense and strong, hinting at the energetic extraction and finishing with considerable grip. Patz & Hall told me they're getting pinot from a better site within Hyde Vineyard beginning with this 2003. |The old wine was more elegant and floral, but this is denser,| noted Moses. Eighty percent of this wine comes from the shy-bearing Cal era clone.

    Generous plum, rose petal, wild berry and lavender aromas carry over to the palate in a rich, supple, elegant style. A nice touch of cedary-vanilla oak adds a pleasant flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on and on.

    The well-made, tannic, dark plum-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard exhibits strawberry, underbrush, forest floor, and sweet cherry characteristics. This chunky, muscular Pinot is not yet fully expressive.

    While hardly invisible, the toast that the Burnside displayed is more subtle and integrated on the sexy, peppery and spicy red pinot fruit nose that offers impressive complexity, introducing rich, nicely textured and sweet medium full flavors that culminate in a warm finish where the supporting acid has a distinct bite to it. This is at present moderately disjointed as the very pretty nose is let down by the harsh finish and while this may harmonize with time, I'm worried about the acid snap.

  • 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.
