2016 Paul Hobbs CrossBarn Chardonnay Sonoma Coast
James Suckling: 93 Points
Linear and lean with wonderful freshness and crispness. Lots of lemon rind and citrus character with hints of stone and mango. Medium body, crisp and delicious. Minerality, sea salt undertone. Even gunpowder. Serious white for the money.
Vinous: 90 Points
The 2016 Chardonnay is soft, supple and impeccably balanced wine, with lovely fruit presence and tons of character. The yellow orchard fruit and floral notes flesh out in this supple, inviting entry-level Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs' Crossbarn label.
Wine Spectator: 90 Points
Rich and creamy, with a mix of toasty oak, fig, apricot and honeydew flavors, ending complex and lingering.
