Paul Hobbs Winery 2011 Lindsay Estate Pinot Noir - 92pts

Paul Hobbs Winery 2011 Katherine Lindsay Estate Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley AVA) Sonoma County - California

AvailabilitySpeciality listing in BC. Private Wine Stores

Cost: $75-85
Alcohol: 14.2%
Date Tasted: February 4th, 2014

Tasting Notes: A big Pinot at a big price for folks looking for mannered intensity wrapped in an elegant veil of dark fruit and sweet forrest floor aromas. Medium purple hued Pinot with a silky textured palate bursting with ripe dark cherry and black currant fruit balanced by meaty-earthy notes, all-the-while remaining Pinot-esk, though, only barely. Finishes very long and a tad 'hot'. 
This impressive specimen should age well for another 5-6 years given the rich tannin structure and concentrated fruit. Drink now-2020.
