Wine Review: This Pinot was the clear winner among many high end wines that we reviewed this weekend. It is ruby colored and opens with an attractive blueberry and cherry like bouquet. There was also a hint of oak detected as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, and has harmonious acidity throughout. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry and blueberry blend. The finish is spectacular. It is quite dry and its persistent tannins are quite lengthy. This terrific offering from Patz and Hall is quite impressive and would be a perfect complement to a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A standout bottling from the 2006 vintage, this powerhouse Pinot Noir offers a flamboyant and cascading wine drinking experience. Deftly combining both high-tone and bass notes, it displays concentrated, red-fruit flavors of plum skin, cherry and pomegranate, alongside deeper layers of maple syrup, blackberry and wood smoke. Reminiscent of our voluptuous 2004 Pinot bottlings, this wine offers fireworks in a glass, with big, sweet tannins and appealing maturity.
