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.

The 2019 Chardonnay has intense aromas of baked peaches, jasmine and baking spices with a pretty, herbal undercurrent. The palate is intense, layered, energetic and perfumed, with bright bursts of acidity and a long, spicy finish.

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.

Suave, with apple pasty and dried pear flavors that take on plenty of creaminess and ripeness midpalate, followed by citrusy hints on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2023. 6,200 cases made.
