2009 Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
With a cool summer and a warm, unhurried harvest period, the 2009 growing season produced a standout Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, combining the structure and purity of the 2007 vintage, with the depth and ripe appeal of 2008. The aromas reveal inviting layers of strawberry, cherry, cranberry and Kirsch that are echoed on the palate alongside notes of spicy fruit. The tannins are broad and muscular, adding mouthcoating richness and vibrant intensity. Lush and compelling now, but with a depth and structure that bodes well for extended aging.
Wine & SpiritsBright, deep red. Bright aromas of raspberry, cherry, flowers and spices. Sweet, lush and flavorful; a red fruit bomb framed and enlivened by pepper and spice nuances, plus a whiff of flowers. At once dense and fruity. Should be a real crowd-pleaser. Very strong for an entry-level pinot.
