Patz & Hall Chardonnay Napa Valley 2007 – The 2007 vintage of Patz & Hall’s Napa Valley Chardonnay is certainly the most favorable to me than the higher end Zio Tony or Hyde Vineyard (which are still awesome), simply because of access and price point. The combination of fruit sourced from Carneros and Atlas Peak, which leads me on by taunting my taste buds with citrus fruit and spice with a hint of grandma’s applie pie finishing out with a clean texture and finesse. A luscious Chardonnay with great persistence and harmony of flavors. Doesn’t get much better. Pairs with grilled red snapper topped with fresh crabmeat.
