2018 Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1522650 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The largest production cuvée is the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, which comes from multiple sites and was aged 9 months in 43% new French oak. Readers looking for a great introduction into the wines of the estate can't go wrong here. Medium ruby, it has beautiful aromatics of raspberries, black cherries, and strawberries, loads of spice, violets, and underbrush nuances, medium to full body, good acidity, and a silky, seamless texture. It's beautifully done and well worth seeking out. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years. Inner quote mark (5/2000)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made with about 10% whole cluster, the 2018 Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple color and a nose of cranberry sauce, rhubarb, tea leaves and earth with a spicy undercurrent. Medium-bodied, it's concentrated and grainy with appealing juicy fruits and a long, lifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) will show readers just how immensely appealing the 2018 vintage is for Pinot Noir. Rich, boisterous and inviting, the 2018 has so much to offer. An explosion of floral and spice notes leads to a core of juicy fruit as this super-expressive, inviting Pinot shows off its considerable allure. It is a real overachiever in this range. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense, layered red with blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full body. Solid core of fruit. If you like fruit, here it is. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (1/2020)
