Paul Hobbs Valdez Pinot Noir 2009
External Reviews for Paul Hobbs Valdez Pinot Noir
Painterly cerise in color, a stately Pinot Noir that presents with both assertive and refined brushstrokes. Aromas of black cherry, violets, and white pepper lead to a firmly structured, yet velvety palate yielding dark fruits, cola, and subtle notes of almond oil. A memorable finish reaffirms your first impressions that this is just a lovely wine. Hobbs aged this Pinot for 15 months in French oak barrels, 67 % of which was new. The Ulises Valdez vineyards were once an apple orchard and wines from this temperate patch of brown sandy loan are intense and bold.
Two brilliant Pinot Noirs include the dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged 2009 Pinot Noir Ulises Valdez and the 2009 Pinot Noir Lindsay Estate. Both are full-bodied efforts boasting abundant black raspberry, rhubarb, black cherry and cola notes, subtle oak,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
