Begins with layered aromas of raspberry tea, spicy cherry, licorice and tarragon, as well as a classic Hyde note of dried rose. On the palate, fine-grained tannins provide an elegant, silky mouthfeel, while supporting flavors of cherry pie, cocoa, fennel and five spice.
Our longest grape purchase relationship is with the Hyde family. We have bought Hyde Vineyard fruit since 1990—our third year of production. Larry Hyde and now his son, Chris Hyde, are not only close friends but continue to produce some of our finest fruit, making wines of grace, harmony and personality. The wine world knows the quality of Hyde Vineyard, we are fortunate to have some of the best blocks come to Patz & Hall.
