Patz & Hall 2014 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard


"There's a sultry aromatic combination of stewed strawberry and bright raspberry as well as subtle thyme, tarragon, rosewater and French toast on the nose of this bottling from the iconic vineyard. The baked red fruits and hard woody spices are cut by pungent acidity and firm tannins on the sip. Hold off a bit on this one, but then enjoy for decades. Drink 2019–2034." Wine Enthusiast 93 Points, Cellar Selection

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard is from the Santa Lucia Highlands. This sees 75% new French oak and has been one of the bright, shining stars of the portfolio for many years. The Pisoni Vineyard was, according to vineyard legend, planted with a suitcase clone from one of the most famous vineyards in Vosne-Romanée. This has a high amount of French oak (75%) because this is always the richest wine in the portfolio. The 2014 does possess a deeper, ruby/purple color, beautiful, opulent blackcurrant and brooding black fruit characteristics, with forest floor and a floral note followed by a full-bodied, sumptuous texture. This is a bigger wine, cutting a much deeper and larger swath across the palate, and should drink well for up to a decade or more." Robert Parker 93 Points
