Paul Hobbs CrossBarn Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013

$24.99

A great new Chardonnay from one of California's most celebrated winemakers Paul Hobbs. Crossbarn is his new label and a fantastic value in high-end Chardonnay. Robert Parker:  "A stunning bargain is the Chardonnay CrossBarn, which was aged in 75% stainless steel, was put through 100% malolactic, and 15% was barrel fermented in order to provide a subtle hint of spice. Made in a steely, Chablis-like style, it offers up full-bodied tropical fruit notes intermixed with hints of honeysuckle and crushed rocks. Drink this 4,000-case beauty over the next several years."

Very old world in its approach. Judicious use of oak and tropical inclinations. Guava, pineapple, citrus, and Granny Smith. Very good structure, all around, good new world Chardonnay.

An odd wine. Super lemon-lime nose reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc, same fruit on palate but very round and not as angular as the nose promises. Still good acid but has been put through full ML. Strikes me as over-manipulated.
