Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Moving to the reds, the 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers a medium ruby/purple hue to go with a beautiful perfume of mulberries, black cherries, Asian spices, and roasted herbs. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it still brings plenty of fruit, with a great mid-palate and outstanding length on the finish. It's common in 2019 for the Russian River Valley Pinots to show a beautiful sense of freshness and elegance, and this wine delivers those qualities in spades. It can be drunk any time over the coming 7-8 years.
The 2019 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is super-expressive right out of the gate. Inky red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice and rose petal meld together. Supple and fruity, with tons of charm, the Russian River Pinot has a ton to offer. I would prefer to cellar if for a year or two, as the tannins need time to settle down.
Contoured and well-spiced, with roast beef accents to the dried cherry and berry flavors. Ends with concentrated hot stone and underbrush accents on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2024. 7,379 cases made.
