‘I admire things that are well done, a fine painting, a quality car, a well-executed meal, I enjoy quality, skill, expertise.’ Paul Hobbs
Twice named 'Wine Personality of the Year’ by Robert Parker and given the title of ‘Steve Jobs of the Wine World’ by Forbes Magazine, it is obvious why the meticulous and dedicated winemaker Paul Hobbs has been so successful. Beyond his own vineyards in Sonoma County and Napa Valley, (Paul Hobbs Winey and Crossbarn Winery) Paul is an international consultant known for his outstanding work in Argentina (Viña Cobos). He is also now involved in a joint venture in the Finger Lakes region of New York, so hopefully we can anticipate some interesting Rieslings and possibly Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and even Gewurztraminer emerging from New York State.
Here at The Vinorium, our Paul Hobbs allocation is a sell-out every year to those long-time supporters and it is not hard to see why, with scores of 100 Parker Points for both his Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard 2013 and Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2013. The 2014 vintages of these wines were scored 98-100 Points and 96-100 Points respectively, so it is clear to see that Paul Hobbs’ wines continue to be some of the best in the world.
