Alcohol/vol 14.2%
The quintessential Russian River Valley Chardonnay, this wine offers a lustrous pale straw hue and lively aromas of citrus, nectarine and yellow flowers. The supple texture and seamlessly structured palate are layered with white peach, apricot, lemon zest and Gravenstein apple. Notes of minerality linger over the long, pleasurable finish.

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.
