The 2008 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard (1179 cases) from that extraordinary site in the Santa Lucia Highlands has a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of forest floor black raspberry and blueberry fruit. It is easily the most successful of the 2008 Pinots from Patz and Hall exhibiting broadness a savory round mouthfeel and medium to full-bodied flavors. It is a beauty to drink over the next 4-5 years. One of the most reliable negociant firms in all of California is that of Patz and Hall as the following tasting notes demonstrate. They are spot-on across the board with their generic as well as single-vineyard wines. There is no doubt they have been accessing some of the best single-vineyard sites in California for nearly as long as I have been writing about wine. Patz and Hall now produce eight separate Pinot Noirs which would make them feel at home working in the Cote d-Or where most vignerons have at least a half dozen different offerings.

Sweet nuanced nose combines red fruits spices and flowers with mocha smoke and deeper soil tones. Compellingly fat rich and sweet with an almost candied character to the fruit but at the same time surprising clarity of flavor. Finishes long sweet and quite long with substantial dusty tannins.
