From California's true Sonoma Coast, this classic California Chardonnay has clean, concentrated flavors of apples, peaches, pineapple and spiced vanilla. American winemaker Paul Hobbs' Chardonnays are legendary. He produces CrossBarn Chardonnay using hand-harvested fruit from select, low-yield vineyards. This has structure and weight in balance with pure fruit, and is an exceptional alternative to the Hobbs limited releases.

Growing up on a working farm in upstate New York, Paul experienced first-hand the influence of terroir on the character of fruit, when his father had him taste apples of the same variety grown in different orchards several miles apart from one another. The diversity of flavors and textures made an impression on him and would later influence his approach to winemaking.
As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, and for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to prospector to truffle-hunting dog. Hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak aging, he went on to become winemaker for Opus One and Simi wineries, and then consultant to Peter Michael, Fisher, Lewis, Catena and others. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991 and Vina Cobos in 1999. He continues to be a leading consultant winemaker around the globe.

A delicious, bright and fruity white with sliced-apple and honey character. Medium body. Crisp acidity to the lovely fruit. Subtle and clean. Drink now. Screw cap.

The 2018 Chardonnay from Crossbarn is made without oak and bottled early to preserve a clean, crisp style. It has an inviting nose of Red Delicious apples, warm hay, clover honey, saline and crushed shell with loads of warm stone fruits and a toasty note. Light to medium-bodied, it struts the line between fresh citrus and savory character, finishing lifted and refreshing, with a touch of texture.

The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has a bright, exuberant bouquet of tropical fruits and citrus to go with a medium-bodied, juicy, elegant style on the palate. With good fruit, bright acidity, and a clean finish, it's well worth its going rate.

The 2019 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is bright and finely cut, with loads of citrus peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper. This vibrant, steely Chardonnay has so much to offer. This is the first vintage in which the malo is blocked, leading to a style that emphasizes freshness. Most of the fruit is now estate.
