Patz & Hall Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
From two small blocks within the larger Hyde Vineyard. These blocks spotlight new and older plantings of the famous Hyde-Calera selection, and include coveted grapes from the “old field.” Super-fresh and dynamic, with brilliant layers of pure cherry, cranberry, raspberry and orange zest. While there is a vivid brightness and clarity to the high-toned fruit, there are also deeper notes of mocha and forest floor that add nuance and intrigue. While the tannins are abundant, they are smooth and supple and seem to fuse completely with the fruit, flowing to a finish that goes on and on.
