About

95

"The 2016 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a beauty that shines on all accounts. Aged 10 months on lees in 45% new French oak, it reveals a gold, slightly green-tinged color to go with awesome notes of caramelized citrus, freshly crushed rocks, spice, and a distinct salinity. It’s clean, medium to full-bodied, beautifully layered, and just a head-turning Chardonnay well worth seeking out."

90-92 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The 2016 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is a very pretty, nuanced wine, and also a terrific introduction to this range of super-expressive Chardonnays from Paul Hobbs. The understated personality of the year comes through nicely in the wine's lifted, gracious feel. The lemon confit and white flower notes are bright and nicely delineated."

92 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Chardonnay features a wonderfully spicy nose of nutmeg, ginger ale and coriander seed with a core of Bosc pears, ripe nectarines and applesauce. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic freshness with a zippy acid line lifting all those fantastic spices to a good long finish. 5,390 cases were made."

92 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"A creamy white with some mangoes and sliced lemons. Medium body, a round and soft texture and hints of lemon rind. Drink on release."

91 Wine Spectator

"Clean and perfumed, with floral, white peach and citrus blossom scents that are elegant and refined. Drink now. 5,390 cases made. -JL"
