Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2011
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
A first-rate Chardonnay, solidly exhibiting the house style of dry, elegant complexity. It's the most Chablisian of Hobbs' recent vintages, with brilliant acidity and minerality giving the tropical fruit and oak flavors a stony grounding. It would not be surprising if this wine ages well for six years or so. - S.H. (8/1/2013)
Complex and well-built, offering modest flavors and medium weight, with notes of spicy apple and light cedary oak, ending with honeydew melon and honeysuckle accents. Drink now through 2016.
