Paul Hobbs Winery:
Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989.

Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary. Read less

It started off with a quintessential Zin like aroma. It tasted like one too. :( It was very heavy and jammy, with cherry, and a slight molasses flavor on the finish. This type of fruit bomb is not why I drink Pinot Noir, it is why I drink Zinfandels. It did have a wonderful mouthfeel and was rather supple.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 87-88The 2006 Pinot Noir Russian River is a straightforward, chunky, fruit-driven effort displaying notes of plums, ripe cherries, chocolate, and earth. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.Wine Tasting NotesThe 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.

Wine Tasting NotesA fragrant nose of strawberry and underbrush accompanies deep plum color. The palate offers perfectly-ripened black cherry and currant flavors that meld seamlessly with earthy accents of bergamot and dried herbs. A touch of acidity accents a lengthy finish.

This Pinot Noir comes mostly from Paul Hobb's vineyard Lindsay Estate in the Russian River Valley. With bright cherry and black tea aromas, to a full, plush mouth feel packed with flavors of wild berries and mushrooms, Hobbs has created an intriguing Pinot. Unfined and unfiltered.

The most intense, extracted of this lovely trio from Paul Hobbs, this wine is not for the faint of heart or for those who want tight, ageworthy versions of Pinot. This is outgoing, ripe, rich Pinot that can be drunk up today or can be put away for a half decade or more because it famously combines both succulent depth and convincing structure. Its sweet cherry and caramel character comes with touches of molasses, violets, cocoa and rich soils, and those complex layered pieces are fitted together with into the wine's supple entry and long, open flavors and rewardingly tasty finish.
