Best Pinot Noir

What is the best Pinot Noir in California? Possibly the world? It has to be Patz & Hall of Sonoma County. This winery only does two grapes -- Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. That's it. 

The winery is devoted to handpicking grapes from single vineyards (the vineyard is on the label). The grapes are hand-picked according to the specifications of the winemakers. The wine is only lightly filtered (the white wine is a bit cloudy but wonderfully fruity). The chardonnay is terrific but the Pinot Noir is in a class by itself, an amazing wine, spirit in the bottle. No one in California comes close with Pinot Noir.
