A great new Pinot Noir release from one of California's most celebrated winemakers Paul Hobbs. Get the new vintage before the ratings come out. 94 Points Brix26:  "The 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine layered with expressive red berries, flowers and sweet spices. Silky tannins frame an exceptionally polished, refined finish. This is another flat-out beautiful wine from Paul Hobbs. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.  This is a dazzling set of Chardonnays and Pinots from Paul Hobbs." 93 Points Robert Parker:  "Hobbs, who has such a brilliant track record, also excels in Pinot Noir.  While he uses multiple clones, he tends to have a preference for the Calera clone as opposed to the Dijon selections, a sentiment shared by increasing numbers of top Pinot Noir specialists in Northern California. His 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River offers loads of black cherry, raspberry and sassafras notes intermixed with some earth and tobacco leaf. It is full-bodied, opulent, and just a lusty, heady Pinot Noir that is actually fairly priced. Drink now-2022...Paul Hobbs has emerged as one of the great success stories in Northern California."

Big Russian River Pinot. Lots of extraction. Typical ripe cherry, cola and tea. Some whole berry? Oak coming through as a vanilla note. A touch hot, but enjoyable.

Bought fall 2016 at Pine Orchard, $65.99. Best California Pinot ever tried. Rather fruity, but some earthiness, and very smooth. Not hot or spicy on the finish.

2013. Stemmy and plummy as all get out. Medium bodied. Well made-as all the PH estate stuff is.-with acidity/tannins for days. Balanced and intense.

Number 2 of my 3 bottles. And this is improved over number 1 from a year ago. The initially overly fruity intro of a year ago has integrated. Its RRV all the way thru. I'll wait two years for my 3rd bottle. Cheers.

A very nice Pinot that was unfairly outmuscled last night. Jeffy, this may go down as the best last place wine in the history of wine tastings!

An elegant if not refined expression of Russian River Pinot Noir. Lots of fruit on the nose followed by flavors of raspberry, currant and just a slight hint of anise. The finish is a little peppery with some tartness that lingers very nicely. A good start to our evening.
