Winemaker Notes :

Displaying a deep crimson hue, the 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir bounds from the glass with plush aromatics of Morello cherry, mulberry, baking spice, and red clay. The fine, alluring texture gives way to focused flavors of boysenberry, bergamot, and iron which continue to evolve throughout the lengthy finish. Delightful with wild mushroom tartine, roast quail, or rosemary-rubbed leg of lamb.

Jeb DunnuckMoving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is the appellation release from Hobbs, and it's brought up all in French oak. Black raspberries, bouquet garni, crushed flowers, and honeyed strawberry notes all emerge from this beautifully polished, medium-bodied, seamless effort. With lots of upfront fruit, plenty of underlying depth and structure, and a great finish, it's a winner. Drink it over the coming decade.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple colored and reveals gregarious notes of crushed black and red cherries, warm raspberries and mulberries with touches of baking spices, red roses and spearmint. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with red and black berry layers, framed by plush tannins and a lively line, finishing long and spicy. 7,265 cases produced, to be released in March 2019.
