Paul Hobbs 2018 Goldenrock Estate Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

This rugged and remote site situated on the second coastal ridge just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean yields a wine with deep ruby in the glass and vivid aromas of red florals, orange peel, and wild strawberry. The palate is agile and precise with round, intensely focused fruit flavors and velvety texture that is well-integrated with flavors of Rainier cherry, blue-berry, bergamot, and fresh rosemary. It retains its refreshing acidity throughout, bringing tension to the remarkably long finish that gives hints of lavender and sea salt.

Vinous - 96 Points: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate is the most powerful and structured of the 2018 Pinots. Readers will want to cellar it for at least a few years, as the tannins are pretty imposing at this stage. A wine of tremendous persistence, the 2018 is dark and virile, with a phenomenally long finish laced with hints of savory herbs, lavender and graphite. The fruit starts to emerge with time in the glass, but the 2018 will be even better with further time in bottle."

Wine Spectator - 95 Points: "Rich and contoured, with ferrous notes to the well-structured red currant, dark cherry and dried blackberry flavors. Supple minerality shows on the spicy finish, where light creamy accents linger. Best from 2021 through 2026. 801 cases made. "

Jeb Dunnuck - 95 Points: "Coming from a vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, the 2018 Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate reveals a deeper ruby hue to go with ripe, sexy notes of black raspberries, toasted spices, orange blossom, and violets. It's a rich, sweetly fruited, plush beauty with ripe tannins, beautiful overall balance, and great finish. This gorgeous wine shows how good 2018 was for Pinot Noir. It's one of the richer, more powerful efforts from the Sonoma Coast."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94 Points: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Goldrock Estate has a medium ruby-purple color and is shy to begin, revealing hints of fresh cranberries, tar, blackberries, blood orange and oolong tea leaves. The medium-bodied palate is packed with juicy fruits, wrapped in a fresh, silky frame and finishing very long. 801 cases produced."
