Hob Nob is a wine brand that was introduced in 2007 and it seemed to me to be the French answer to the mass-marketed Australian wines. With very sleek modern packaging and low prices, these wines are targeted to a younger audience.
Of all Hob Nob wines, I like the Pinot Noir the best. It is off course lighter in character and actually taste like a Pinot Noir, although not as tart (low acidity) as most other Pinot Noirs. With notes of chocolate and vanilla, this is a nice wine for its price and will be a good economical choice for parties etc.
Like other Pinot Noirs, this one is also sensitive to storage conditions and this wine tasted best during the first few months after it came onto the shelves (for the 2011 vintage, this was in late August 2012).
This wine is produced in France (Languedoc) and imported by HobNob Wine Company, White Plains, NY.
