The 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers more minerality and salinity as well as darker fruits, graphite, smoke, and scorched earth characteristics. It's tighter, more backward, and Burgundian, with terrific concentration and purity as well as balance. Give it a few years.
The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is the real gem in this range, given its superb quality and modest price. Then again, the Sonoma Coast Pinot is the second wine from Paul Hobbs' Goldrock Estate. Unctuous and creamy on the palate, with terrific depth, the 2016 shows why the wines of the true Sonoma Coast are so appealing. Sweet red cherry pie, blood orange, pomegranate and wild flowers all race out of the glass. More importantly, the 2016 shows why the wines of the Sonoma Coast are so compelling , and that comes down to being able to achieve ripe flavors at relatively low sugars.
This is the first vintage for this new Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. The 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast opens with a medium ruby-purple color and notes of warm cherries, mulberries and wild blueberries with touches of dusty soil, dried herbs and tree moss. The medium to full-bodied palate has a good, solid structure of ripe, grainy tannins and a refreshing line carrying the fruit to a long, perfumed finish. 2,049 cases were made.
