The 2013 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate is round, creamy and beautifully layered, with plenty of sweet red cherry, plum, spice and lavender notes pushed into the foreground. Attractive spice and floral notes add to the wine's sensual, inviting personality. The Katherine Lindsay should drink nicely pretty much upon release. There is plenty of Russian River raciness here. The 2013 was done with a touch of whole clusters (4-5%), but they aren't especially evident.

As for the 2013 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate, this is another beauty, with loads of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, some floral notes, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a rich, layered finish. It should drink well for at least a decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Hobbs, Paul

Growing up on a working farm in upstate New York, Paul Hobbs experienced first-hand the influence of terroir on the character of fruit when his father had him taste apples of the same variety grown in different orchards several miles apart from one another. The diversity of flavors and textures made an impression on him and would later influence his approach to winemaking. Paul later helped his father achieve a lifelong dream of transforming some of the farm’s acreage from apples, nuts and peaches to wine grapes.

As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, and for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to prospector to truffle-hunting dog. Initially hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak aging, he was promoted to the inaugural Opus One wine-making team. Following his Mondavi experience, Paul joined Simi Winery as Winemaker before going on to consult for Peter Michael, Fisher Vineyards, Lewis Cellars, Bodegas Catena and others. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991, Vina Cobos in 1999 and continues to be a leading consultant winemaker around the globe.
