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

Coffee bean, vanilla and smoky herb notes top the slightly oaky core of strawberry and tart cherry fruit that shows a hint of orange oil. This is smooth and polished in the mouth with nice tension. Even though the acidity and tannins are firm, the wine is rather soft and suave with a hint of sweetness, perhaps from the oak. That sweetness helps to buffer the structure and supports bright blackberry and cherry fruit on the palate. The finish tightens up a bit and becomes more tannic and sharp from the acidity as the fruit fades from center stage. This is young and tough today. While it's noticeably oaky, time should soften the edges and allow the core of fruit to become more expressive. Shows some heat on the finish. 88pts

A perennial favorite, Paul Hobb's Russian River Pinot is always the first to sell out, and inevitably the wine receives a huge score after it's gone. Make sure to grab a couple bottles before it's gone.

Vibrant, fresh and dense, with a tight core of plum and raspberry fruit that remains tightly focused and persistent. Lively acidity keeps the flavors dancing. Drink now through 2020.

A delicious, entry-level wine, the 2011 Pinot Noir is also a great example of the year. Sweet floral notes, red berries, mint and anise are some of the notes that woven together in the glass in this expressive and beautiful wine. Juicy and radiant, the 2011 captures the very best qualities of Sonoma Pinot Noir in this cold vintage. It is a terrific showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2021.

The 2011 Pinot Noir Russian River (5,000 cases produced) offers plenty of bright, rich, cherry fruit, a luscious, medium-bodied mouthfeel, and impressive purity, texture and length. This 2011 is already performing well and should continue to do so for 5–6 years.
