Chardonnay 2015

Paul Hobbs Winery

This blend from prestigious Russian River vineyards is a quintessential chardonnay from this appellation. With a pale straw, pearlescent hue, the wine impresses with aromas of yellow blossoms, citrus and a note of chamomile tea. The richly textured palate offers delectable flavors of fresh white fruits and sweet brioche accented by minerality for a lingering and pleasurable finish.

Reviews

  • "92-93 points. A layered and rich wine with cooked-apple and -lemon character. Round and phenolic. Flan and light butterscotch. Lovely potential." (Wine Advocate)
  • "91-92 points. The 2015 Chardonnay explodes on the nose and palate with sheer power, delivering full-throttle tropical fruit and allspice flavors with a touch of buttered toast. The full-bodied palate has a lovely savory edge that offsets the fruit beautifully, with just enough freshness and a very long finish." (Wine Advocate)
