Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine EnthusiastPowerful and lush, this is a velvety, classically styled Russian River Valley Pinot, weighty and lip smacking in black cherry and touch of earth buoyed by finely hued acidity. Perfectly enjoyable right now, it'll age, too, the spicy undertones coaxed to take center stage.
VinousThe 2012 Pinot Noir is rich, juicy, round and voluptuous. Dark red berries, flowers, sweet spices and licorice all flesh out in an inviting wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. This is a classic Paul Hobbs Pinot built on fruit and pure texture. Drink: 2015-2022.
Wine SpectatorFeatures ripe, juicy red berry and raspberry fruit that's elegant and refined, with a mix of crushed rock, dried herb and savory floral scents. Good length. Drink now through 2021.
