Hob Nob Pinot Noir Vin de Pays d'Oc 2012

Member Review by joebernardinoATyahoo:

Rich and fruity, opens up after contact with air for a few minutes, develops a finish of chocolate and raspberries, pleasant and a bit sweet for a Pinot Noir possibly blended with a small % of shiraz? For $11 it's a good value.

Appearance: Nearly black but upon swirling bright red/fuchsia are revealed lurking the edge. Nose: Clear with a muted caramel sweetness and sharp citrus. Barely a whisper of dusty soil. Mouthfeel: Thick and drying, entices me to sip again and again. Taste: Chalky/dry, fruit aspects are merged with a brine-y and spicy heat on the way down. Finish: At first the throat is dried, then the fruit makes itself known. A coffee esque moisture reforms and begins warming my palette. Very long finish. 7.5/10 Not my thing but it is indeed good!

Had this for dinner Saturday night with my pizza. Very easy to drink, nice berry flavors. Good for the price

The sweetie and I got a glass of this on our anniversary when we went out for tapas. The acidity in this wine worked great with the fatty jamon Iberico. Smooth and polished, pairs great with food, and it was nice and full. This was my first Pinot Noir and I can say I now have 3 or 4 different pinot noirs in my cellar waiting to be enjoyed. It's a good wine to enjoy when a simple red is desired or with people who are still learning about wine.

This was my first red wine, and I must say, I'm impressed! It goes down fairly smooth, and it's a great transitional wine from white. At $9 a bottle it's a great value!

Mood: PolishedCharacter: As elegant as a bouquet of violets and bursting with cherry flavors, our Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with soft tannins, to create a smooth, rich texture. - Winery

Has loads of ripe crushed black and red fruits mixed with phenolic compounds, juicy black plums and good layers of spices, minerals and excellent acidity to balance out the forward tannins and the powerful fruit.

Coined in the 18th century, the term HobNob refers to people drinking to one another, clinking glasses, rubbing elbows, celebrating various moments and milestones.

Brendan's BuzzThis was a real surprise for me. Finding a great Pinot Noir for under $10 is like the Holy Grail of wine buying, and we did strike gold with the Hob Nob. This Pinot Noir from the South of France has enticing flavors of cherry, earth and spice with a medium body and nice finish. I was very happy to find my new house Pinot Noir. The Hob Nob Pinot Noir is a real winner!
