Highlighting the terroir of the Russian River Valley, this deep ruby colored wine has aromas of cherry, raspberry, cola, forest floor and vanilla. Rich and round in the mouth, the fine tannins and fresh acidity give a long, generous finish.

Hobbs, who has such a brilliant track record, also excels in Pinot Noir. While he uses multiple clones, he tends to have a preference for the Calera clone as opposed to the Dijon selections, a sentiment shared by increasing numbers of top Pinot Noir specialists in Northern California. His 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River offers loads of black cherry, raspberry and sassafras notes intermixed with some earth and tobacco leaf. It is full-bodied, opulent, and just a lusty, heady Pinot Noir that is actually fairly priced. Drink now-2022.

The 2013 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is quite pretty, with a little more aromatic nuance, brightness and overall delineation than the 2012, but a bit less mid-palate exuberance. Dark red cherries, blueberries, cloves, lavender and mint flesh out in a juicy Russian River Pinot full of near-term appeal. There is a savory, delicate quality in the 2013 that makes it irresistible. About 40% of this fruit is estate.
