Winemaker Notes

This is a Pinot Noir with a lot of Pinot “perfume” as well as interesting fresh raspberry, cola and cherry notes. Sleek and aromatic.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Lots of ripe-strawberry character with lemon rind and berries. Full-bodied, dense and layered with a beautiful finish. Fruit-forward and serious. Drink or hold.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Vintner Donald Patz crafts this blend from several vineyard sites across the appellation. It captures the perfume of baked strawberry, cola, nutmeg and cardamom, followed by a lush,plush and velvety midpalate that boasts a toasted oak tone.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Elegant, with vibrant red fruit and spice flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. The minerally finish is long and puretasting, with some savory accents. Drink now through 2023

Maritana Vineyards, California
A new (2017) and exciting producer of Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir under the direction of longtime vintner Donald Patz. His three-decade association with Sonoma and Russian River Valley grape growers has given him access to some of the top vineyard sites in the valley. Utilizing these vineyard sites he and his team are crafting compelling Chardonnays and delicately perfumed Pinot Noirs. Mr. Patz decided to focus entirely on the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County as the source for his new winery. He’s got friends there. He immediately contacted Steve and Joe at Dutton Ranch as well as Charlie at Chenoweth Vineyards (among others) to see what might be available in 2017. The grapes he came up with for this first vintage surprised even him! (see Vineyard Sources) The focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are Mr. Patz’s favorite varietals from the Russian River Valley.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
