After Goldrock was established in 2005, it quickly became one of the elite parcels for pinot noir on the west Sonoma Coast. Paul confesses a profound connection to Goldrock, not only being drawn by the distinctiveness of its high quality fruit, but also by the stunning setting dominated by large sentinel redwoods that stretched across the property.

In The Vineyard
“The true character of a site is only revealed through the work and determination of tending each vineyard with meticulous care and vinifying with minimalist winemaking techniques that fully express the terroir.” – Paul Hobbs In 1991, pioneering winemaker Paul Hobbs established Paul Hobbs Winery. The Paul Hobbs Katherine Lindsay Estate in Sebastopol, California, purchased in 1998, would later be the site of his Howard Backen designed winery, completed in 2003. The winery exemplifies his vision and dedication to sustainability and his on-going quest to refine the art of winemaking with minimal intervention, yet meticulous care. Our vineyard designate and appellation wines are a pure expression of our interaction with nature and place, featuring Chardonnay (Russian River Valley, Sonoma Mountain), Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, Carneros) and Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley).
A fresh, floral nose with ripe red cherries, strawberries and vanilla. Full body and rounded, velvety tannins with a cinematic level of vibrancy and technicolor saturation. Mineral-driven, forward-moving energy that completely takes hold of you. Just so alive and exciting. Fantastic. 97 points, James Suckling
