2017 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River Valley


Current stock: 3

This 2017 is just beautiful.  Right from its lemon verbena-apricot nose right down to its endless finish, you know you are in for a treat.  It’s in Hobbs’ really smart use of wood where this wine shines.  It’s there- you know it’s there- but it is so seamless a part of the wine that it was like it came from the grape and not a tree!  Rich without being overly intense, pretty without forgetting its roots, it’s a California Chardonnay that does everything about right!  Great on its own but really a great food wine too, this Chardonnay is perfect with a fresh cracked Dungeness, a grilled swordfish fillet with compound herb butter
