Patz & Hall Zio Tony Ranch Chardonnay 2006
from Russian River, California
This site on Frei Road, in the heart of Russian River Valley, is owned by the Martinelli family and is farmed by George Martinelli, the youngest in a distinguished family of Sonoma County viticultural masters.
Reflecting the rich character of the small 2006 crop, this vintage of Patz & Hall's Zio Tony Ranch Russian River Chardonnay has a silky, viscous texture that accentuates its sweet custard and caramelized sugar elements. Vibrant and fruity, this wine displays more lime, peach and lemon cream notes than in previous vintages, with a citrus oil emphasis that segues to a long, satisfying finish.
"Bright gold hue. Fresh apricot and peach aromas with a secondary wet stone mineral scent. Ripe peach and caramel flavors with a subtle vanillin influence. Rich, steadfast close with lingering peach, butterscotch and mineral notes." 92 Points
