Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
AG(Vinous) 91 points: “The 2012 Pinot Noir is rich, juicy, round and voluptuous. Dark red berries, flowers, sweet spices and licorice all flesh out in an inviting wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. This is a classic Paul Hobbs Pinot built on fruit and pure texture.”
WA91: ""The 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River exhibits sexy black currant and black cherry fruit, crisp acidity, a certain framboise character, medium to full body, and abundant texture as well as flavor. The good news is there are over 6,000 cases of it. It should drink well for 4-7 years."
