Top10 Wine Spectator – 7o e 6o lugares

Mais 2 vinhos publicados pela Wine Spectator. Agora são o 7o e o 6o lugares. Segue novamente a ficha técnica e as notas de degustação (em inglês). Dessa vez vieram um Shiraz australiano e um pinot noir da California (do nosso amigo Paul Hobbs, que já foi entrevistado aqui). Até agora o painel está bem diversificado.

7o lugar – Schild
Shiraz Barossa 2008

94 points / $20
5,000 cases imported
Australia

Schild’s entry-level Shiraz has all of the stuffing of a blue-chip bottling, but sells for a fraction of the price of other brands. The winery is able to achieve this because it’s one of the largest independent growers in the Barossa, with more than 400 acres under vine. Winemakers Jo Irvine and Scott Hazeldine used grapes from the cooler southern Barossa to produce this polished and complex red that was aged in both new and used American oak.

6o Lugar – Paul Hobbs
Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008

94 points / $45
3,644 cases made
California

Paul Hobbs made this exceptional Pinot Noir in a tricky year and made it in considerable volume, a challenge to most vintners. Hobbs founded his own label in 1991, but also consults for dozens of clients in California, Argentina, Chile and Hungary. This bottling is one of six different 2008 California Pinot Noirs from Hobbs; the grapes for this one come from six vineyards in Russian River Valley, including the Lindsey Estate, Valdez and Walker Station.
