Food Pairings for Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard
Almost a new car leather tone on the nose, as well as wild raspberry, anise and blackberry with spice and touches of mineral and sage. The palate is full of dark sage-laced fruit. Very nice herbaceousness to this wine. - Tasted at Marché bacchus 10/2/10
Managed to get only one bottle of this fabulous '08 Pinot Noir from our future son-in-law for my birthday. We celebrated by pouring this for our daughter, Pam and Matt when he proposed. Only problem it was only a glass apiece! Also had the '09 at a dinner and was almost as good!
External Reviews for Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Carneros Hyde Vineyard
Deep ruby in color, it is perfumed with violets, bright Bing cherry and clean earth. The palate is firmly structured, opening with perfectly ripened raspberry and red fruits that yield to undertones of forest floor and orange pekoe. Firm, youthful tannins are joined by notes of clove and white pepper to create a lasting finish.
The 2002 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard Carneros was excellent last year, but is outstanding out of bottle. Deep ruby with some purple nuances, the sweet nose of plums, figs, dark raspberries, and ripe cherries jumps from the glass. In the mouth it is medium to full-bodied with good acidity, some subtle oak, and a long, forest floor taste in the finish. This is a full, authoritative and powerful wine. There are 308 cases of this impressive Pinot Noir which should drink well for up to a decade.
The brilliant 2008 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is one of the finest Pinots I tasted from the 2008 vintage. Made from the Pommard and Calera clones, it exhibits a dark, saturated plum/ruby/purple-tinged color as well as an enormous bouquet of plums, soy, forest floor, black cherries and black currants, stunning, full-bodied, rich fruit and a supple, luscious finish.
The dark ruby-colored 1997 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard offers moderately intense aromas of sweet oak intermixed with attractive black raspberry and cherry fruit. Spicy, earthy, underbrush, and foresty flavors are present in this medium-bodied, spicy, soft Pinot. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Ripe, rich and full-bodied, with layers of currant, plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit, shaded by spicy, cedary oak and finishing with a long complex aftertaste.
A more modern Burgundian style, this very deep Pinot Noir shows the lushness of its American oak on the full plum and berry character. The finish is full and long with a lingering softness.
Delivers a complex range of flavors, with cola, raspberry, mocha, herb and earth notes. Balanced and full-bodied, this gains richness and depth on the finish, though it loses focus slightly. Drink now through 2010.
Wine Advocate Review Rated 88-90 The 2008 Pinot Noir Russian River exhibits lots of spice box and roasted herb characteristics, and is a slightly more narrowly constructed wine than the 2007. Nevertheless, it possesses good fruit, and should provide enjoyable drinking for 4-5 years. Wine Tasting Notes The color is deep, rich maroon. The nose offers aromas of ripe plum and cherry scented with black tea and cedar. The generous, silky palate welcomes you with luxuriant flavors of black cherry, cola, apple pastry and plum, beautifully woven with notes of dusty rose and warm space. Toasty oak and firm, well-integrated tannins mark its long finish.
