BackgroundTo craft our Patz & Hall SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR, we source grapes from a number of California’s most distinguished winegrowing families. The Dutton family provides us with fruit from several of their small vineyard sites. Charlie Chenoweth, Lee Martinelli, and Steve Hill also contribute superb quality fruit to this complex blend of vineyard sites and clones. The blend alsofeatures a core of fruit from Gap’s Crown, one of the Sonoma Coast’s great emerging vineyards. In addition, to achieve our goal of producing a Pinot Noir that embodies the depth, structure and vibrant fruit flavors of the Sonoma Coast, we continually seek out new single-vineyard caliber Pinot Noir sites to add to this delicious cuvée.
