Paul Hobbs 2019 Chardonnay Russian River Valley


"Leading off the Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs, the 2019 Chardonnay Russian River Valley reveals a light gold hue as well as a classic, cleanly perfumed bouquet of honeyed citrus, crushed stone, white flowers, and brioche, with just a hint of toasted almond emerging with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, fresh, and lively on the palate, it gains more and more minerality as it sits in the glass. It’s flawlessly balanced, with an incredible mix of rich, ripe fruit and racy, bright acidity as well as outstanding length. This white is well worth searching out, and I would rank it with one of the top, base appellation blends in the vintage." Jeb Dunnick 94 Points

"The 2019 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is fabulous. Creamy, open-knit and so expressive, the 2019 has a ton to offer. Apricot, baked apple tart, pastry and light tropical accents all run through this wonderfully inviting Chardonnay." Antonio Galloni 93 Points

"The barrel sample of 2019 Chardonnay is exuberant with baked apples and guava aromas loaded with honeyed undertones. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and very fresh, its gregarious fruits lifted by juicy acidity that carries the long finish. This is currently resting in stainless steel and is due to be bottled in January 2021. Around 6,100 cases will be made." Robert Parker 92-94 Points
