2019 Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate
2019 Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate, Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County, California
Winemaker Notes: Located on a coastal ridge just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, the remote site experiences substantial diurnal temperature shifts yielding wines characterized by their tension, structure, and precision of fruit. Our second vintage shows deep ruby and lifted aromas of fresh violet, Bing cherry, and hint of sea salt. The texture is focused with silky tannins and well-defined flavors of blueberry, orange peel, savory thyme and Asian spices that are accompanied by an abundance of acidity that follows through the long finish.
James Suckling 97pts: This is a glorious red with density and compressed character to the mouthfeel. Pure and very focused with crushed berries, orange peel and sandalwood. Edgeless. Exciting. Tight, yet so characterful and great. Drink or hold.
