Maritana is headed by the famed California winemaker, Donald Patz. His goal with Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County is to make a wine that emphasizes the most intriguing part of this special grape variety – aroma. This hearty red is beautifully layered and complex. Wild strawberry, rhubarb, dried herb and black tea give it varietal distinction amidst an underlying tension of acidity. Thick tannin and oak weight contribute power.
