Editorial Reviews for Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard
Big spicy blackberry fruit greet the nose with lots of brambly and toasted spice base notes. Silky and yet thick not he palate and packed with wild cherry fruit. There's a fine base of silky tannins here supporting the rich fruit and a little wood spice adding an accent note on the long finish. A big Pinot, easy to like. 91pts

External Reviews for Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard
The generic 2008 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has earthy, herbal and black cherry fruit notes along with a hint of new oak. Medium-bodied, with a good finish, it is not complex, but it is a mouthfilling, solidly made Pinot Noir to drink over the next 3-4 years.
Good medium red. Pure, floral aromas of cherry, raspberry and blueberry; a real fruit bomb on the nose. Then juicy and pure in the mouth, with ripe acidity enlivening the wine's ripe red fruit flavors. Not especially fleshy but fresh and persistent. Made from a blend of 15 sites, most of them close to the coast.
The 1999 Pinot Noir Sonoma (1,400 cases) is a seductive, smoky Pinot offering jammy strawberry and cherry fruit, a velvety texture, and a medium to full-bodied personality. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
Medium ruby-red. Captivating aromas of black fruits, violet, bitter chocolate, smoked meat and underbrush. Sweet, dense and expressive in the mouth, with briary black fruit flavors complicated by violet and meat and supported by a firm mineral spine. Tannins are firm by sweet. This is better than a "regional" pinot has any right to be, but then many Sonoma Coast vineyards carried tiny crop loads in 2005 due to poor weather during the flowering.
Good deep red. Perfumed nose and palate offer strawberry, cola, mocha and underbrush, plus a lightly caramelized quality; lots of soil character here. At once sweet and energetic, with a lovely light touch contributing to the impression of lift. A ve... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 Patz and Hall Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard 750ml
Pure, rich and focused, with firm, ripe, vivid plum, black cherry and raspberry fruit that's full-bodied, intense, complex and concentrated, gaining momentum and ending with a long, full, persistent finish. Drink now through 2016.
This vineyard often exhibits classic Carneros flavors of strawberries and raspberries mingled with mocha, espresso and cinnamon. Our HYDE VINEYARD - Carneros Pinot Noir consists of grapes from three small parcels of the vineyard planted to a veritable who’s who of the finest Pinot clones. Though this wine focuses on a core of Hyde-Calera grapes, it also includes Dijon 777, 667, 115, Swan, Pommard and Bebe clone fruit. As a result, it is at once delicate and fascinatingly intricate, while at the same time being dense, deeply colored and extracted.
With compelling density, a broad, plush texture and fine-grained tannins that saturate the palate, this is a rich and supple Pinot Noir offering lovely purity of fruit. Precocious and accessible, it is revealing delicious layers of strawberry, pomegranate and red apple skin in its youth, alongside elements of blueberry, toffee and coffee. Classic Hyde, this is a true reflection of a warmer growing site and a world-class vineyard.
