Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2009
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Although this may be a popular style of Pinot Noir, this is not for me. This wine displays cola and dark cherry jam flavors. It is a full flavored style of Pinot Noir with ample body and alcohol. There is some heat on the finish that I don't like.
External Reviews for Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Firm, rich and concentrated, with a wonderful purity of fruit, built around black cherry, plum and blueberry fruit. Finishes with a dash of cedary oak, but the fruit still holds center stage. Drink now through 2010.
WA (90-93)pts. - Winemaker Notes - A deep, garnet hue provides a striking prelude to an aromatic symphony of black raspberry, vanilla and fresh-baked brioche. The palate, silky and well-balanced, weaves together fresh-picked blackberry, dark red cherry and anise with floral notes. Plum and boysenberry harmonize with Darjeeling tea over the long, expressive finish supported by firm, round tannins.
The dark plum/ruby-hued 2009 Pinot Noir Russian River exhibits dusty, earthy notes of raspberries, black cherries, cinnamon and Allspice. Medium-bodied with sweet tannins, this impressive 2009 should drink well for 4-6 years. - Robert Parker 90-93 Points A deep, garnet hue provides a striking prelude to an aromatic symphony of black raspberry, vanilla and fresh-baked brioche. The palate, silky and well-balanced, weaves together fresh-picked blackberry, dark red cherry and anise with floral notes.

The 2009 Pinot Noir CrossBarn is a selection from Sonoma Coast vineyards. Sweet, gamey, autumnal, vegetative notes intermixed with plum sauce, black cherries, flowers and root vegetables.
Perfumed and supple, with rich black cherry, blackberry, floral and spice, gaining depth and nuance. Ends with tight, chewy tannins. Best to cellar. Best from 2013 through 2022.
Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola, allspice and rose. Silky, gently sweet and focused, with very good depth and intense, floral-accented red fruit character. Silky tannins add focus and shape. This suave wine drinks very well right now.
Deep red. Spicy cherry and black raspberry on the nose, plus a hint of dried rose. Fleshy and smooth in texture, with deep dark berry flavors and a late jolt of smoky minerals. Finishes sweet and smooth, leaving floral and mineral notes behind. Pretty sexy and delicious right now.
