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

Features ripe, juicy red berry and raspberry fruit that's elegant and refined, with a mix of crushed rock, dried herb and savory floral scents. Good length. Drink now through 2021.

The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River exhibits sexy black currant and black cherry fruit, crisp acidity, a certain framboise character, medium to full body, and abundant texture as well as flavor. The good news is there are over 6,000 cases of it. It should drink well for 4–7 years.

The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River exhibits sexy black currant and black cherry fruit, crisp acidity, a certain framboise character, medium to full body, and abundant texture as well as flavor. The good news is there are over 6,000 cases of it. It should drink well for 4-7 years. Deep violet in color, this lush yet stately pinot noir seduces with aromas of black raspberry, violets, sassafras, clove and cocoa butter. Juicy red fruits, earl gray tea, hazelnut and damp red clay flavors complement its velvet‐like texture and very long finish. - WineryAlcohol: 14.5%

A top value, the dark ruby-hued 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River displays lots of blueberry, black raspberry and floral notes, a sweet, expansive, rich mouthfeel and excellent purity as well as texture. It should drink nicely for 7–8 years.

Powerful and lush, this is a velvety, classically styled Russian River Valley Pinot, weighty and lip smacking in black cherry and touch of earth buoyed by finely hued acidity. Perfectly enjoyable right now, it’ll age, too, the spicy undertones coaxed to take center stage.
