The Best of Pinot Noir

3. Patz and Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 15
Average price: $37.95 from 1 store
Intense and clean on the nose with wonderful fresh mixed berry notes dusted with some middle eastern spices and topped with fine sage notes. Really deceptive in the mouth. This enters with almost no mass but it’s actually quire rich. The fruit is subdued but deep with layers of dark berry fruit, a hint of plum skin, and integrated oak notes driving toward the finish. This strikes me as just a bit young but it has an inner intensity that makes this already appealing. Great persistence to the black berry, black cherry fruit on the long finish where the tannins threaten to become obvious yet never rise above their fruit driven cover. 93pts
