2014 Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir Hyde
(95 points) The Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard, a wine that can at times be a bit rustic, is anything but that in 2014. Creamy and voluptuous, the Hyde is also endowed with tremendous thrust. Dark red cherry jam, graphite, herbs, smoke, tar and licorice are all pushed forward. In the end, nothing really sticks out, rather it is the wine's exceptional balance that is most impressive. Paul Hobbs describes 2013 as a consistently warm, dry year but without excesses. I remember stopping by in January of that year, and being quite surprised when Hobbs told me he was likely to start irrigating imminently, which is highlyunusual. Then again, the drought was already causing stress in the vineyards. Overall, the 2014s have a touch more natural acidity and as well as more overall brightness and tension. New oak is up in the 2014s, but most wines appear to have the underlying material to support the oak and what is projected to be longer time in barrel. Most importantly, the 2014s show greater delineation of site than the 2013s. (AG) (1/2016) Vinous
