  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    Juicy and vibrant, with a zesty core of cherry and raspberry that's pure and direct, tilting toward the supple side while retaining a firm backbone. Drink now through 2024. 816 cases made.

    Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate has a restrained nose of warm cranberries and red currants with underlying forest floor, chargrill, yeast extract and game. Medium-bodied with a beautiful backbone of finely grained tannins and lively acidity, it offers persistent earth and layers of red berry flavor and great finesse.

  • When Paul Hobbs founded his eponymous winery in 1991, he set out to produce small lot, hand-crafted, vineyard designate wines. He began with just three - one Chardonnay, one Pinot Noir and one Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Over the years, the small family of wines has grown to over a dozen as numerous new and historic vineyards have captured Hobbs' attention since that first vintage. The current wines are the result of years of perseverance, patience and experimentation in Hobbs' continuing adventure with wine. It is his great hope that the fruit-driven, complex wines he makes with his dedicated team will continue to appeal to many people around the globe.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
