Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

With its super-dense character and palate-coating tannins, this wine is one of the stunners of the vintage, and definitely one of our most age-worthy bottlings from 2010. The aromas are deep and brooding, with intense spicy cranberry, cherry and fennel notes, as well as elements of brine and fleur de sel. Though 2010 was a cool vintage overall, two heat events acted like a natural saignée, underscoring the wine’s power and extract. And while there is excellent natural acid, it plays a supporting role, framing this Pinot’s ample weight. A tour de force!

Bright, dark red. Deep, brooding nose offers intense fruit aromas of blueberry, blackberry, crushed cherry and cool cranberry, complicated by root vegetables, crushed sage, menthol and earth. Wonderfully aromatic and fruit-driven in the mouth, with terrific lift from floral and orange peel elements. Nicely ripe, harmonious acidity here. Finishes very long, with dusty tannins and a distinctly juicy quality. This is sexy already but will age nicely.

Combines deliciously ripe dark berry fruit with a graceful texture and deft balance, featuring juicy wild berry and blackberry at the core. Floral, spice and anise touches linger on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
