Paul Hobbs is one of California's most respected winemakers as well as being a highly sought after winemaker consultant for several wineries. He splits his time between California wine country and the sun drenched vineyards of Argentina. Robert Parker praises Hobbs : 'Paul Hobbs is one of the most brilliant winemakers working in California. His empire in the Russian River continues to expand, with a bevy of artisinal hand-made Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Syrahs.' Look for citrus and crème brûlée in the nose leading to a palate with ripe apple, sautéed fig and nectarine. This wine is well balanced and focused, and complemented by a lengthy finish. Typically aged 11 months in French oak, 58% new.

Wine SpectatorPowerful and minerally, with hints of white pepper to the baked apple, pear and tangerine flavors. The lively finish is crisp and focused, offering plenty of spice and lightly buttery notes. Drink now through 2022. 5,964 cases made.

Wine AdvocateA tank sample, the 2017 Chardonnay gives up gorgeous, expressive crème brûlée, ripe apricots and honeysuckle scents with touches of pink grapefruit, guava and marzipan. Medium to full-bodied with a beautiful satiny texture, it delivers bold fruit and compelling freshness through the long finish. 5,900 cases are expected to be made, to be released in March 2019.
