Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Ulises Valdez Vineyard 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91-93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2011 Pinot Noir Ulises Valdez Vineyard is seamless, layered and very pretty. It is interesting to see that the Ulises Valdez is the wine that is most consistent across the 2010 and 2011 vintages here. The 2011 has much of the same richness as the 2010, but at the same time it isn't quite as heavy. Sweet floral and spice notes add complexity to the juicy, expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. (Apr 2013)

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. 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
