“The crème of the crop, a truly extraordinary Pinot Noir. From a site in the Russian River, it offers a huge perfume of ripe cherries and strawberry fruits, spices, forest floor, and exotic flowers. Deep, incredibly fine and elegant, with silky tannin, it’s much more about purity and finesse than overt power and richness. Don’t miss it!” - Robert Parker protégé Jeb Dunnuck (6/18)

BACKGROUND
Winemaker Spotlight: Paul Hobbs
Regarded as an international visionary for his accomplishments in the vineyard and winery, Paul Hobbs combines his childhood roots on the family farm with an innovative scientific approach to refine the art of winemaking. He is recognized across the globe for breaking with tradition and forging new paths in the pursuit of excellence; both in stewardship of the land, and the crafting of wines that represent the purist concept of place. Paul earned his BS in Chemistry from the University of Notre Dame in 1975, and MS in Viticulture and Enology from the University of California, Davis in 1978. Shortly thereafter, he became a member of the enology team at Robert Mondavi Winery, and one year later, at the behest of Robert Mondavi himself, Paul was invited to be on the inaugural team of Opus One.
