Excellent color of deep ruby, garnet in color, nose of black cherry and ripe rasberry. Taste brings a strong pinot with rich black cherry and tart, pleasing cranberry flavors. I want to watch this wine develop in coming years.
Complex with good fruit. Great food wine Paired well with lamb kabobs marinated in cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, garlic, and onion. Also worked perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner that included herbed sausage stuffing. My favorite P&H pinot.
An Evening with Donald Patz of Patz & Hall (Lincoln Park Binnys Tasting Room): Again, a very complex wine that is rich and concentrated, but slightly more balanced than the Hyde. Still large. Plenty of black cherry, some plum and raspberry, violet and a strong perfume that is missing or downplayed in the other lineup pinots. Good balancing acidity, but still rich and concentrated. Excellent wine with a long and complex finish. Might be underrating it here.
