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.

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

  • Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?

  • Paul Hobbs Cross Barn Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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 ... Read More

  • Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed sweet raspberry jam, incense, mocha and spice. On the palate, a burst of intense concentration submitted to a wave of balanced, mouth watering acidity as flavors of sour cherry, sweet jam and herbs washed across the senses. The finish was long but fresh and left me aching for another sip. This was a beautiful and rich California ... Read More
