Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 2014

Paul Hobbs Winery

Highlighting the unique characteristics of the Russian River Valley this chardonnay displays bright golden hues with lifted aromas of citrus, brioche and yellow florals of daffodil and daisy. The long, creamy palate is layered with crisp red apple, apricot and lemon zest that finishes with a hint of minerality.

Reviews

  • "92 points. The 2014 Chardonnay opens with pronounced spice-led notes of ginger, allspice and anise over pineapple, guava and green mangoes. Rich, concentrated and wonderfully expressive on the medium-bodied palate, it has a satiny texture and a deliciously savory finish." (Robert Parker)
  • "91 points. The 2014 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is a classic wine from Paul Hobbs. Creamy, ample and highly expressive, the Russian River Chardonnay makes a terrific introduction to these wines. Dried pear, chamomile, sage and dried flowers are nicely delineated throughout." (vinous)
