Paul Hobbs Crossbarn, Pinot

At #6, Hobbs' Spectator Top 100 Pinot Has A #2
Only 20 Cases Available
Wine Spectator's coveted Top 100 list has been released and everyone is on the hunt for the Top 10. As savvy a detective as you may be, most of these wines have long since sold out. But fear not, with a little due diligence you will find one of these wines is still on the market, only in disguise.
    The # 6 wine this year is the 2008 Paul Hobbs Russian River Pinot - a wine we featured in our March 2010 Merchant's Pick and a wine which is sold out. However we are proud to introduce you to the 2008 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Russian River Pinot Noir. Sourced by the same prestigious producer, during the same stellar vintage, using the same meticulous wine making skills, think of Crossbarn as a #2 vying for the throne as a serious contender.
    When it comes to California Pinot Noir, no winemaker is more consistent and masterful than Paul Hobbs. He produces "full throttle wines that merit serious attention."(Robert Parker). Crossbarn is no exception. All of the passion and elegance that shine through in Hobbs' first label Pinot are present in the 2008 Crossbarn making it one of the best finds of the year.
    Layers of spice and black raspberry on the nose with hints of dried rose. The wine has a luscious, medium to full-bodied texture, and a long finish with a touch of tobacco and cola. Enjoy now and over the next 5 years.

$37.95 per bottle / $455.40 per case
