Paul Hobbs Goldrock Estate Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
This rugged and remote site situated on the second coastal ridge just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean yields a wine with deep ruby in the glass and vivid aromas of red florals, orange peel, and wild strawberry. The palate is agile and precise with round, intensely focused fruit flavors and velvety texture that is well-integrated with flavors of Rainier cherry, blue-berry, bergamot, and fresh rosemary. It retains its refreshing acidity throughout, bringing tension to the remarkably long finish that gives hints of lavender and sea salt.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate has a medium ruby-purple color and is shy to begin, revealing hints of fresh cranberries, tar, blackberries, blood orange and oolong tea leaves. The medium-bodied palate is packed with juicy fruits, wrapped in a fresh, silky frame and finishing very long. 801 cases produced.
