Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Carneros 2005
Rich plum red in color, our second release of Pinot Noir under the Crossbarn label is mouth filling with a great balance of fruit and earth. It greets the nose with aromas of strawberry and clove, and offers loads of cherry, mocha and vanilla on the palate, with a hint of smoked meat and white pepper on the finish. SDWC.
Opened first bottle March 2nd, 2008 Very acidic, with bright red fruit and good spiciness.
Three and a half glasses

Smooth and creamy, with pretty mocha-laced oak and blackberry aromas that turn supple and harmonious on the palate. Ends with a long, fleshy aftertaste that keeps the focus on the berry fruit.
