  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($45) Hazy yellow. Smoky and ripe on the nose, with potent pear and melon aromas underscored by toasted grain and minerals. Surprisingly light in body, offering pure pear and yellow apple flavors and becoming spicier and more tangy on the finish. Nicely melds richness with energy, and has the balance to age.

    Well-executed in a rich, smoky, toasty oak style, with layers of spicy fig, apricot, honeysuckle and melon flavors that fan out and coat the palate, ending with a long, persistent finish.

    Bold, crisp, appealing to both male and female palet. If you're looking for a white that will work for both of you, this is it.

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.
