  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (all Hyde selection) Pale yellow. Powerfully scented bouquet of orange sherbet, toasty lees, smoked meat and Anjou pear. Fleshy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are underscored by dusty minerals and anise. With air, this gains weight and develops a sexy floral quality that carries through the impressively persistent, smoky finish.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    A rich, exotic style that packs in lots of bold flavors, with smoky oak wrapped around ripe fig, melon and apple flavors. Balanced, intense and persistent.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    The 2007 Chardonnay Ulises Valdez possesses a caramelized, candied, nectarine, peach, and pineapple-like character with a smoky, hazelnut note, very good acidity, a full-bodied, powerful mouthfeel, and underlying minerality.

  • 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.
