The nose is an amazing bowl of Mendocino cherries and black truffles. The palette produces a supple well balanced mouth feel. The Mendocino cherries continue mid palette. The only knock is the wine has an alcoholic finish. This wine makes you ask is it really a Pino Noir?οΏΌ

Absolutely an amazing Pinot. Best I have had. Fruity nose, great body and tons of depth and flavor.

Pop and pour at the restaurant. An enticing medium ruby red color. On the nose: dark cherry, vanilla, wet leaves, mushroom. Taste: russian river cherry cola, caramel, fresh herbs, raspberry, pepper. Light dry finish

β€œLeading 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.”

First Paul Hobbs Pinot and excited to try. Had a similar Russian River feel with strong berry in the front and mid palate. That being said, was a bit disappointed in the higher alcohol level, which also seems a bit typical of many RRV Pinots, because it seems to be taking the path of the β€œbig” Napa Cabs.
