Paul Hobbs Winery:
Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs.

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

Uggg - no good tasting notes here. I just recall we really enjoyed. I'll have to get another bottle and update this review ;)

Amazing nose! Earthy, mellow, not a "fruit bomb" but still lots going on. Lots of raisin/cherry on the palate, but not too sweet or syrupy. Rich but smooth. Had this one at a tasting and everyone was raving. Hard to describe...you'll just have to try it for yourself.

Opening with a nose of violets and roasted coffee, it offers a well-delineated palate of dark fruits and cola, overlaid with toffee and allspice. Ripe, focused tannins and fine acidity round out this sophisticated pinot noir whose finish goes on and on.

Robert Parker - The generic 2007 Pinot Noir Russian River is an outstanding example of Hobbs' meticulous vineyard sourcing and winemaking. With copious sweet forest floor, plum, black cherry, and earthy notes, a luscious, medium to full-bodied
