Winemaker's Notes

The cool 2011 vintage has yielded a lovely, aromatically driven expression of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir marked by layered floral notes of rose, carnation and violet, as well as delicate hints of red fruit and spice. On the palate, the flavors are vivid and pure, with red cherry and raspberry fruit supported by soft, yet enlivening acidity. The tannins are supple and subtle, adding to this wine's weight and velvety texture, with oak-inspired notes of cinnamon, clove and maple syrup contributing nuance and complexity. All of these elements lead to a long creamy finish, with melt-in-your mouth tannins. This is an exceptional food wine that will provide lots of pleasure in its youth.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright medium red. Pungent, scented nose offers red cherry, raspberry, fresh herbs, clove and rose petal. Juicy, spicy and refreshing, with lovely floral perfume and nicely integrated acidity framing the sappy red berry and salty mineral flavors. Finishes with sweet, fine-grained tannins and lovely lift. Utterly satisfying entry-level pinot. Patz & Hall bottled more than 7,000 cases of this wine, and roughly the same quantity of the Sonoma Coast chardonnay (plus another 5,300+ of the Dutton Ranch chardonnay), with their dozen or more vineyard-designated bottlings accounting for not much more than 15% of total production in vintage 2011."

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
