Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Paul Hobbs opens with a red plum and chai tea bouquet with hints of strawberry, and cedar. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is very nicely balanced, smooth, elegant, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a delicious red plum and dried strawberry blend with notes of light tea and mulberry. We also detected some hints of craisin, minerality, and dry leaves. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair the Pinot with tuna tartare or with pheasant with mushrooms. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: One of the best vintages in recent memory, 2021 will be remembered for its intensely flavored berries, a smooth harvest and most importantly, exquisitely balanced, nuanced, and vivid wines. Violet in hue, the 2021 vintage entices with pomegranate, dark cherry, and black tea. The voluptuous texture fuses with layered notes of boysenberry, bergamot, and hints of sage. As it moves across the palate both acid and fine-grained tannins are flawlessly integrated, accentuated by a red clay minerality. This is a refined and graceful wine with lively acidity, leading to a long finish.
