You know Paul Hobbs for Bordelaise varietals like Cabernet, but you may be surprised to find him effortlessly crossing the aisle with Burgundian beauties like this Pinot. A softer touch is needed with Pinot. Aromas of baked sour cherry, orange peel and crushed flower jump out of the glass. The palate is framed with plush tannin, bright acidity and herbal undertones. Good enough to open for your potential in-laws.
