“To craft our Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, we source grapes from a selection of California’s most renowned winegrowing families. The Dutton family provides us with fruit from several of their small vineyard sites. Charlie Chenoweth, Lee Martinelli and Steve Hill also contribute superb quality fruit to this complex blend of vineyard sites and clones. The blend also features a core of fruit from Mark Sanchietti’s Two Dryers Vineyard and Bill Price’s Gap’s Crown Vineyard, one of the Sonoma Coast’s great winegrowing sites.
Eighteen small, independently family-owned vineyard sites come together in this gorgeous display of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This is an approachable Pinot Noir with fine-grained tannins, freshness and purity. Intense aromas of Bing cherry, strawberry, carnation flowers and licorice notes pour from the glass. Though nicely dense and full on the palate, the wine avoids heaviness with fresh acidity and bright red fruit flavors that resolve on a long, detailed finish. This 2017 offering has the essential elegance and purity that defines great Pinot Noir.” - Jeff Hall
