Russian River Valley

2017 Bootlegger's Hill Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

This one-time moonshiner site, deep in the Sonoma Coast hills was planted by Charlie Chenoweth to a large array of high-quality Pinot Noir selections, which add complexity and depth. The nose is filled with bright cherry, blueberry and dried orange peel notes along with a hint of pine and cedar. Textured and elegant, the layers of flavor keep revealing themselves as the wines sits in the glass. This may be one of the best Patz & Hall Pinot Noirs of the 2017 vintage.
