Melville

Estate Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

I love Melville. Terrific wines and a great value across the board. Sadly this is my last one. On the sweeter side, but not extracted and well-balanced. Lots of cherry cola, cinnamon and floral notes. I keep saying I’m going to get on their mailing list. I just need to suck it up and do it. — 10 days ago

Sandy's Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2010

This took about 30min to open up - a lot of VA on the nose initially - but after a while this wine really started to shine. Classic St Rita Hills pinot! — 8 days ago

Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Pinotfiles lament this wine, a scandalous PN with the heart of a Napa cab. I loved serving it beside the Ken Wright PN just to show in 2 sips the range of great wine that can come from this amazing grape. Rich, unctuous and always a crowd pleaser. Immense dark cherry concentration with a woodsy tannin length in a smooth and sexy package. Serve this blind and have fun with people. — 5 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Covert Fingers Pinot Noir 2004

“The Return of Mike Grammer” Dinner on 7/5. - Agree with @Michael Meyer that this did not show as Pinot. I probably would have guessed Syrah blind. It just did not fit with the other Pinots and would be best served on its own. Did just that with the remnants on night two. Served with leftover tenderloin, this was rockin’ so much that I didn’t give a d@mn about the variety. Score for Day 2. — 13 days ago

Never fails to deliver. For $52 these single vineyard pinots from APV are hard to beat in the value department. — 9 days ago

Patz & Hall

Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Greg Ballington
9.2

Last stop on day one in Sonoma was at Patz & Hall Winery. Last wine is their Pinot Noir from the Pisoni Vineyard.

Medium ruby red. Layered nose with spices, dark berries and purple floral notes. Medium plus acidity (7/10) and medium plus to full bodied. Rich yet elegant on the palate with notes of dark berries, purple flowers and a touch of earthiness. Balanced throughout with a long finish. Drink till 2029. $$$

Pali Wine Co.

Huntington Pinot Noir 2016

Cloved spicy nutmeggy cherries aromas burst over the glass. Leggy and round, juicy and smooth, fruity and bright. Summer's ripe cherries splash the palate. Yes
please!
Pair with semi-soft white cheeses. Think Italian cow's milk fontina or sheep's milk gouda.
