96 Points Rare new Pinot Noir release from one of California's most celebrated winemakers Paul Hobbs. 94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The Hobbs 2018 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is unusually refined this year. The savory, earthy notes typical of Hyde are present, and yet the wine has an extra kick of polish that helps to balance what are sometimes slightly rustic qualities. Elegant and polished, the 2018 is light on its feet and impeccable in its balance. It is also one of the finest Hyde Pinots I can remember tasting from Paul Hobbs." 93 Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample, the Paul Hobbs 2018 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple and opens with classy allspice and clove over tar, crushed black cherries, wild blackberries and marionberry with touches of underbrush, fern and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, it offers great fruit intensity and a spicy vein, with a grainy frame and seamless freshness, finishing long. 621 cases are expected to be made and released in March 2020."
