Paul Hobbs Katherine Lindsay Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
Purchased in 1998, this land parcel became the winery’s first estate and was named in honor of my great-grandmother who established the family farm in the mid-1850’s. The 2019 vintage is signature Katherine Lindsay and shines with crystalline ruby and inviting aromas of blue violets, raspberry, and hints of sweet spice. Buoyant and expressive on the palate, fine-grained tannins wrap around juicy red cherry with accents of white pepper and red earth, supported by a balanced acidity that give it length and focus.
A barrel sample, the 2019 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate offers lush black and red berry preserves aromas with notes of toasted coconut and spice. The palate is medium-bodied, seamlessly structured and very intense, its powerful fruits lingering on the finish. I can't wait to see this in bottle when those youthful fruits give way to more nuance. Around 450 cases will be made.
