  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 86

    ($47) Hazy yellow-gold color. Musky aromas of nuts, orange zest and cotton candy. Rich, nutty and deep, with rather exotic apricot and tropical fruit flavors. Offers decent chewy texture and finishes with a phenolic edge.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The 2001 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard exhibits a light gold color in addition to a boldly flavored bouquet of buttered citrus intermixed with honeyed lemons, smoke, spice, and earth. Full-bodied and structured, it should last for 7-8 years.

    Wonderful harmony, richness and balance, with ripe, complex fig, anise and apricot flavors. Shows a deft hand with toasty oak, too, giving it a creamy texture. Long, flavorful finish.

  • 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.
