Poached pear tart, and rugged minerality upon opening. Evolves into focus with time; succulent orchard fruit, refined vanilla oak, and cleansing acidity. Aromatic, generous, and bright throughout.

Shift in style for 2013 chardonnay is apparent. Gone is the lavish buttery character--this is just gorgeous. Nose is very Chassagne-Montrachetesque: piña colada, orange blossom, pomaceous fruit soar in the glass, full creamy palate balanced by perfect acidity, nice mineral-coated mouthfeel with a bite reminiscent of green pear w skin on. Finishes with power and finesse. A+.

Another great Chard. Loving me some Patz and Hall. Does have some time to age and I think it'll be even more lovely in a few years.&

Medium to deep golden yellow with a greenish hue. A touch of oak on the nose with toasty notes, lemon curd, and banana. Medium to high acidity (6.5/10), full bodied and round. Rich on the palate with citrus, lemon and intense tropical notes. Long and lingering finish. Better when slightly chilled. Drink till 2020.

Delicious. A little strong price wise for Sonoma coast fruit though.

So on point I drank two this week... So far. Lovely touch of butterscotch and vanilla with Meyer lemon and a pineapple finish, the acidity and minerality are great and I love the over all weight, not too heavy.
