    90 points | 2014 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

    Wine Spectator | September 2016

    90 points | 2013 Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir

    Wine Spectator | September 2016

    “A rich, robust style, with deep dark berry and red berry fruit that flirts with the jammy side. Highlighted by opulent blackberry and blueberry notes, this finishes long and persistent.” - James Laube

    Year’s Best Chardonnay

    Luke Sykora, Wine & Spirits | October 2016
    "Our blind panels tasted 750 new-release US chardonnays over the past 12 months. Our critics rated 45 as exceptional (90+) and 9 as Best Buys.”

    2013 Patz & Hall HYDE VINEYARD – Carneros Chardonnay – 90 Points
    “A savory chardonnay with baked pear flavors just edging out the earthiness, the finish of this wine takes on the sweet scent of a root cellar. Leesy, soft and round, this is a balanced wine to serve with roast pork.” - Luke Sykora

    Fodor’s Travel 2016: Napa and Sonoma

    Fodor's Travel 2016 | August 2016
    “Top Sonoma Wineries”
    “A Napa transplant that relocated to Sonoma in 2014, this respected winery is known for single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs made by James Hall, who consistently surpasses peers who have access to the same high-quality fruit. At Salon Tastings the wines are paired with gourmet bites.”  

    “Best Bets for Sonoma Valley Wineries: Food- Wine Pairing”
    “The gourmet small bites at Salon Tastings at this respected winery show just how food-friendly its Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are.”  

    “Exploring: Top Attractions”
    “Sophisticated single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are the trademark of this respected winery that relocated from Napa to Sonoma in 2014. It’s a Wine Country adage that great wines are made in the vineyard—the all-star fields represented here include Hyde, Durell, and Gap’s Crown—but winemaker James Hall routinely surpasses peers with access to the same fruit, proof that discernment and expertise (Hall is a master at oak aging) play a role, too. Seated tastings hosted by knowledgeable pourers take place in a fashionable single-story residence 3 miles southeast of Sonoma Plaza. You can taste at the bar and on some days on the vineyard-view terrace beyond it, but to learn how food friendly these wines are, consider the Salon Tasting, at which they’re paired with gourmet bites crafted with equal finesse.”
