Generous plum, rose petal, wild berry and lavender aromas carry over to the palate in a rich, supple, elegant style. A nice touch of cedary-vanilla oak adds a pleasant flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on and on.
Good deep red. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, nutmeg and earth, with hints of licorice and gingerbread. Rich, dense and strong, hinting at the energetic extraction and finishing with considerable grip. Patz & Hall told me they're getting pinot from a better site within Hyde Vineyard beginning with this 2003. "The old wine was more elegant and floral, but this is denser," noted Moses. Eighty percent of this wine comes from the shy-bearing Cal era clone.
The well-made, tannic, dark plum-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard exhibits strawberry, underbrush, forest floor, and sweet cherry characteristics. This chunky, muscular Pinot is not yet fully expressive. Give it another year of bottle age, and drink it over the following 5-7 years.
