Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Full red-ruby. Refined, complex nose hints at minerals, meat, cola, earth, underbrush and exotic spices, along with a suggestion of chocolatey oak. Very ripe and sweet, with a silky texture and dominant spice and cola flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and very good length. From a blend of Calera, Swan and Pommard clones.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Subtle earth and mineral flavors are woven through the core of sour cherry and raspberry fruit, picking up touches of herb and tea. Finishes clean, with a mouthwatering aftertaste. 683 cases made.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
