Patz & Hall Chardonnay Carneros Hudson Vineyard 2006
At Hudson Vineyard, the cold year and cool summer of 2006 yielded grapes with excellent natural acidity, great minerality and vibrant high-tone character. From its nut-crusted lemon cream, citrus, clove and spice aromatics to its juicy mouthful of peach and green apple flavors, this wine offers a lean, nervy expression of Chardonnay. Bright and balanced, it is already displaying focus and sophistication, and has the potential to age beautifully for years to come.
Established in 1988, Patz & Hall embodies the shared vision and collective expertise of four talented friends - Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moses and Heather Patz. Together, this dedicated team of individuals has turned a desire to craft benchmark, single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs into one of California's most celebrated artisan wineries.
