Paul Hobbs

Kick Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2006

This has to be one of the earlier vintages of this one (can’t recall when Hobbs started making syrah, but it was definitely around this time). Really terrific wine. Has lost a bit of its tannic bite but still has plenty of fruit and great balance. Was still drinking exceptionally well after putting a cork in it and in the fridge for a few days, so there’s definitely some additional staying power with this one. Great wine from a fantastic producer. — 6 days ago

Lewelling Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Still a babe. Rich dark garnet colour. Nose of blackberry and leather. Lots of tannin here but read only well balanced. High alcohol but not overpowering- this will age nicely. — 2 days ago

Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir 2017

Incredible pinot - simple yet subtle with notes of blackberry, pepper, a middle of the mouth touch of tannins but a velvety finish that leaves you wanting more.

Amazing buy on sale at Costco for $25

Korte Ranch Vineyard Zinfandel 2016

Elyse is a benchmark Zin producer IMHO and this is a solid effort. Needs some air because it’s a little locked up initially. Then it gives off classic Napa Zin scents of restrained and pure black raspberry and warm gravel. It’s also got a thing that reminds me of an old rich guy’s mahogany and Corinthian leather appointed library. It’s low-toned in the mouth, with a peppery scorched earth thing initially, with fruit coming on later. For me, the scorched earth thing brings the composite down a bit. — 19 days ago

Agreed. It will be interesting to see how new ownership treats the wines.

Vellutini Ranch Vineyard Zinfandel 2012

A perfect zin at a perfect age. This 17.3 beauty drinks like 14.5 at most and is elegant as can be. Soft red fruits, with gentile acidity and velvety soft tannins. Just lovely! — 4 days ago
