Food Pairings for Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard
I had this last night at a wine dinner and I enjoyed it. On the nose, it is starting to develop some tertiary aromas of tea leaves and earth. I enjoyed the nose with its slight funkiness more than the palate, although the palate was good. There were flavors of blackberries and earth with a slight alcoholic edge. I think this wine needs to be consumed, now.
The 2006 Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Hyde Vyd Turning more towards the red-fruit spectrum of aromas and flavors than in previous vintages, the 2006 HYDE VINEYARD Carneros Pinot Noir showcases layers of strawberry, cherry and cassis. To accentuate these vibrant qualities, the winemaking incorporated 20 percent whole clusters, which also contributed an exotic hint of cinnamon-clove spice. Intricate, ethereal and aromatically driven, this nuanced Pinot Noir seamlessly blends smooth tannins with natural minerality and focused acidity, yielding a wine with bright, appealing finesse and sophistication.Winemaking: 100% Pinot Noir; Multi-yeast fermentations (wild & cultured); 100% malo-lactic fermentation in barrel; 50% new Burgundian French oak barrels; Bottled without filtration This is a California Wine.
