Winemaker's Notes

Like several of our finest vineyards, Chenoweth Ranch was originally cultivated as an apple orchard. Planted on the far western edge of the Russian River Valley appellation, this beautiful 7-acre vineyard is located in Green Valley, one of the region's coolest areas, and is farmed exclusively for Patz & Hall. Though enjoying excellent sunlight from it slight south-facing orientation, the vineyard is sheltered by steep western hills, which protect the grapes from late-afternoon baking, while helping the fruit to retain lively natural acidity. This meticulously cared-for vineyard consistently produces fresh strawberry and Bing cherry flavors.

A standout bottling from the 2006 vintage, this powerhouse Pinot Noir offers a flamboyant and cascading wine drinking experience. Deftly combining both high-tone and bass notes, it displays concentrated, red-fruit flavors of plum skin, cherry and pomegranate, alongside deeper layers of maple syrup, blackberry and wood smoke. Reminiscent of our voluptuous 2004 Pinot bottlings, this wine offers fireworks in a glass, with big, sweet tannins and appealing maturity.

Critical Acclaim

"An exceptional 2006 that offers wonderful harmony and finesse. Full-bodied, ripe and fleshy plum, black cherry and raspberry fruit is intense yet elegant. Smooth, deep and persistent."
93 Points

"Medium crimson hue. Pretty bouquet of violets, briar and black cherry. Notable balance on entry with black cherry, forest floor and crisp, backing acidity deftly framed by fine-combed, oaky tannins. Clean, complex close with honey, caramel and light spice notes and an elegant integration of fruit."
93 Points
