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.

  • Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Rose of Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A really pale copper bronze color. This has a lovely nose with a yeasty edge to the floral and mineral flecked strawberry fruit that shows a hint of almost coconut cream and lime. Very bright on entry, almost tart but theres a nice undercurrent of sweetness here, gauzy and strawberry/lime toned that lends this a sweet/tart quality that extends o... Read More

  • 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.

  • Paul Hobbs Russiian River 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
