Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a classic wine from this region as well as a great example of the style of this estate. Ripe black cherries, currants, flowers, and earthy notes all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated 2016 that has a beautiful sense of purity and elegance. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.
The 2016 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is a fabulous appellation-level wine. Rich, fruity and incredibly expressive, the 2016 has so much to offer. A rush of dark red and purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender, spice and hard candy are front and center in this brilliant, inviting Pinot from Paul Hobbs.
Well-focused on a tightly wound core of ripe plum, raspberry and black cherry flavors, backed by solid tannins, making this a good choice for mid-term cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2026. 6,000 cases made.
