Leading with boysenberry, cigar-box, smoke, rose petals, and plum, the nose is as rich and concentrated as you would expect from this classic blend. The dark aromatics in the nose are overtaken by mouthwatering, bright flavors of Bing cherry and zesty lemon. The back of the palate is textured by bright acidity and soft tannins that push out the long and lingering finish.
Patton Valley Pinot Noir Lorna-Marie
Patton Valley Vineyard got its start in Chicago, in the early 1980′s. Graduate students Dave Chen and Monte Pitt divided their time between their studies at Northwestern University’s J.L. Kellogg School of Management and the windy city’s great wine shops, all the while dreaming of starting a winery together. After graduation they parted ways, heading to separate coasts, but their passion for wine continued to grow.
