A wine of exceptional density and concentration. Aromas of dried roses, cedar cigar box, almond toffee, and cocoa are exquisitely balanced with ripe cherry and cranberry notes. Ripe and full, yet effortlessly light and nuanced on the palate, the flavors dart and weave around a seamless juicy core of fresh red fruit.
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.
