Sonoma Stars from Patz and Hall

2016 Patz and Hall Dutton Ranch Chardonnay...$39.99

Compare to Total Wine at $42.99
The 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch offers more honeyed citrus, orchard fruits, pineapple, and floral notes, with a gorgeous minerality developing with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, vibrant and fresh, with good acidity and building richness, it's classic all the way and a thrilling Chardonnay from this estate.

2016 Patz and Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir $44.99

Compare to Total Wine at $46.99
The 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast comes from a handful of sites on the Sonoma Coast, and it too is more ruby/plum colored. Ripe strawberries, dried flowers, sweet earth, and spice notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, has a silky, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. As Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir goes, it's another rich, powerful wine from this estate. It should keep for 8-10 years or more.
