  • This is the second bottle of Patz & Hall that has been corked. The cork was good but it had that old gym bag smell and It tasted worse than it smelled. I usually open the bottles before I go to the restaurant to make sure they are good. I did not do so this time and the restaurant nearly charged me an additional corkage fee for opening this bottle that was bad even though I had them open another bottle in it's place. The bottles came from two different stores. It will be a long time before I try one again, but I will.

  • Deep gold in colour with a medium intense nose.

    Positives: Medium+ toasted oak, toasted marshmallows, lemon, green apple, cinnamon, cloves and limestone. Medium+ body with good acidity, a fairly long length & the alcohol is well integrated.

    Negatives: A touch too sour on the finish.

    Drink now on its own but will pair better with crab Alfredo.

  • It has been about a year since I last drank this wine. The component balance in this bottle is leaning more toward oak with less fruit, a change from my last bottle. The wine at present tastes more like a typical American reasonably heavy oaked Chardonnay. If you like that style the wine is fine, but since we prefer a more fruity, citrusy style, the wine is becoming less interesting.
