Pinot Noir, Katherine Lindsay Estate 2014

Paul Hobbs Winery

Grown in the iron-rich “Sebastopol Series” Goldridge soils of our Katherine Lindsay Estate Vineyard, this deep ruby pinot noir opens with an expressive bouquet of exotic spices, caramelized tobacco leaf, forest floor and ripe wild berries. Rich but restrained, the wine’s generosity of fruit is cut by balancing acidity, preserving the freshness so characteristic of this site. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 71% new.

Reviews

  • "95 points. 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." (Wine Advocate)
  • "94 points. 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." (Wine Spectator)
