Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($70) Hazy greenish-straw color. Musky and leesy, with fresh Meyer lemon and tangerine aromas complicated by a hint of tarragon. Very creamy on the palate, with lush citrus and orchard fruit flavors, gentle acidity and a wild iodine quality that reminded me of what I tasted at Kistler. Full, concentrated chardonnay, with very good finishing power and length.

Excellent PH chardonnay as usual. Lovely straw color with grapefruit, melon and other citrus notes paired with enough oak to find a very nice balance. Great finish results in a good wine start, paired with scallops and other seafood.

Like butter this wine has a apple nose and delicious fruit and caramel flavor on the palate.

About This Producer


When Paul Hobbs founded his eponymous winery in 1991, he set out to produce small lot, hand-crafted, vineyard designate wines. He began with just three - one Chardonnay, one Pinot Noir and one Cabernet Sauvignon.

Over the years, the small family of wines has grown to over a dozen as numerous new and historic vineyards have captured Hobbs' attention since that first vintage. The current wines are the result of years of perseverance, patience and experimentation in Hobbs' continuing adventure with wine. It is his great hope that the fruit-driven, complex wines he makes with his dedicated team will continue to appeal to many people around the globe.
