External Reviews for Paul Hobbs R. River Pinot
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.
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.

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%
Bright ruby-red. Musky, smoke-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry skin and cola. Spicy and taut on entry, then fleshier and sweeter in the middle, offering spicy black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a jolt of pepperiness. Finishes bright and long, with very good focus and lingering spiciness.
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.
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.
