2012 Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1155024 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* Powerful and lush, this is a velvety, classically styled Russian River Valley Pinot, weighty and lip smacking in black cherry and touch of earth buoyed by finely hued acidity. Perfectly enjoyable right now, it’ll age, too, the spicy undertones coaxed to take center stage. (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a beautiful wine with sweet-strawberry and berry character. Silky tannins. Full body with refined tannins. 10% to 15% whole-cluster fermentation. Eleven months in barrel. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark *Two Stars* This wholly enjoyable, seemingly ready to drink edition from Mr. Hobbs is the most open of the familial trio and its never stints on depth or suppleness of texture. There is a softer underbelly here, and an invitation for current drinking, yet the wine is not going to fall apart any time soon, and if we would age its mates for longer, we would be more than content to let this one sit in the cellar for a few years as well. Inner quote mark (6/2014)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features ripe, juicy red berry and raspberry fruit that's elegant and refined, with a mix of crushed rock, dried herb and savory floral scents. Good length. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2014)
