Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

$44.99

New Pinot release from Patz & Hall! This beautiful wine blends a selection of fruit from small, family owned vineyard sites from Sonoma Coast, Green Valley, Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley . Some of Sonoma's most distinguished viticulturists and vineyard owners provide fruit for this complex blend, including the Dutton Brothers, the Martinelli family, Charlie Chenoweth and Steve Hill. Reflecting its Sonoma Coast origins and the long, cool growing season, the Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir captures a more elegantly Burgundian expression of Pinot Noir. In the bouquet, this cool-climate charm takes the form of bright, fresh and flirtatious cherry and strawberry flavors. These fetching aromas are echoed on the palate, where complex layers of mulled cherries, strawberries and raspberries intermingle with spicy cinnamon and clove elements.

Been a awhile since I’ve had a Patz & Hall. Nose reveals; baked & candied black plum, plum, dark cherries, blackberries, raspberries, poached strawberries, blueberries, dry cranberries, dark spice, smoked meats, core of black licorice, soft tarry notes, steeped black tea, mixed berry cola, fruit roll ups, sandy soils, moist clay, eucalyptus, dry twigs, tree sap, forest floor with dry leaves, touching mushrooms with candied, fresh & withering; red, purple, blue florals framed in violets. The body full & round...well extracted. A little too much. Nice viscosity. Baked & candied black plum, plum, dark cherries, blackberries, raspberries, poached strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, dry cranberries, dark spice, smoked meats, core of black licorice, big dark fruit cola, soft tarry notes, steeped black tea, mixed berry cola, fruit roll ups, sandy soils, moist clay, eucalyptus, sage, nut skin, dry twigs, tree sap, dark spice with palate heat, forest floor with dry leaves, touching mushrooms with candied, fresh & withering; red, purple, blue florals framed in violets. The acidity round & rushes like a fresh water mountain river. The finish is extremely well balanced, polished, rich, lush, elegant persistent ending in dark spice & earthiness. There is another point or two to be had from this bottling with three to five years of cellaring. Photos of, our friends deck in progress and vistas.
