Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

$109.99

97 Points                                                   Rare new single vineyard Pinot Noir release from one of California's most celebrated winemakers Paul Hobbs. 94+ Points Robert Parker: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate is a little closed with notions of scorched earth, black soil, pepper and cumin over a core of redcurrants, black cherries and warm plums. Full-bodied, firm and with a grainy texture, this is a more structured Pinot, possessing many earth and spice layers and great length. 749 cases were made."

Leather, cherries, pepper, restrained oak and tannins on a long delicious finish. Plus Sharon likes it.

Nice, easy drinking Pinot. Started off thin and a bit dusty, but the fruit started to shine through after a 1 hour decant. No food pairing required - solid.

The nose is an amazing bowl of Mendocino cherries and black truffles. The palette produces a supple well balanced mouth feel. The Mendocino cherries continue mid palette. The only knock is the wine has an alcoholic finish. This wine makes you ask is it really a Pino Noir?

Pop and pour at the restaurant. An enticing medium ruby red color. On the nose: dark cherry, vanilla, wet leaves, mushroom. Taste: russian river cherry cola, caramel, fresh herbs, raspberry, pepper. Light dry finish
