Clones Beba, Calera, Swan, 777, D115
Owner/Manager Paul Hobbs Winery
Site Contoured with multiple exposures, predominately southern
Soil Goldridge yellow, sandy clay loam, red clay and coarse, gravelly, loam soils
Climate Perfectly poised in the Laguna Ridge, our estate receives both the gentle marine influences coming in from the coast, and the warm sun enjoyed in this pocket of the Russian River Valley. This combination of elements creates a temperature differential ideal for the growth of pinot noir.
From the estate surrounding our winery comes a striking pinot noir. Aromas of clove and Bing cherry, layered palate of raspberry, blackberry and anise with firm velvety tannins.
Named after Paul’s daughter, this wine is a barrel selection produced only in best vintages to showcase texture, concentration and structure. Aromas of rose petal and cola give way to a palate of black cherry and clean earth with notes of cedar, cardamom and subtle minerality on the finish.
