Pinot Noir 2015

Paul Hobbs Winery

A classic rendering of Russian River Valley pinot noir, this wine offers a dark cherry hue and aromas of black cherry and bright strawberry. Rich, dark fruits dominate the palate, with accents of red fruit and complex undertones of white pepper and nutmeg. The fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity add layers and tension, accentuating the flavors and velvet-like mouthfeel for an elegant finish.

Reviews

  • "92 points. A gorgeous appellation-level wine, the 2015 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is plush and inviting, with plenty of vintage 2015 richness coming through. Succulent black cherry, plum, licorice and lavender are front and center. Silky tannins add to the wine's supple feel and overall immediacy." (vinous)
  • "91 points. Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir offers a profoundly fruity nose of black cherries, mulberries and black raspberries with hints of cinnamon stick, underbrush and Provence herbs. Medium-full in body, rich, plush and oh-so-juicy, this wine delivers mouth-filling blackberry satisfaction with a lively herbal lift." (Wine Advocate)
