Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 2014

Paul Hobbs Winery

This quintessential Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is deep ruby red in color with red cherry and exotic spice aromas of cardamom and star anise. The supple palate unravels in layers with succulent flavors of Santa Rosa plum, raspberry and black tea. Fine tannins round out the finish and are balanced by its youthful acidity.

Reviews

  • "93 points. The 2014 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is terrific. Bright, nuanced and savory, the straight Russian River Pinot has all the attributes of this strong vintage. Sweet floral notes round out a Pinot that is understated and silky. This is a rare appellation-level Pinot that could use another few years in bottle to fully flesh out." (vinous)
  • "93 points. Exhibits a distinctive streak of crushed rock and loamy earth amid the tannic wild berry and savory notes, showing a kiss of oak and transforming into a celebration of licorice and anise elements. Drink now through 2025. 6,315 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
