96+ points Limited single-vineyard Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs. 96+ Points Robert Parker: "The Paul Hobbs 2018 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate, still in barrel, opens slowly to candied ginger, honeycomb, dried lime peel, river stone and marmalade notions with quince paste, apricots, warm peach and a lacy veil of new-oak spice. The palate is medium to full-bodied, über silky and explosively flavored with vibrant freshness, finishing very long and layered. Can't wait to see this in bottle! 325 cases are expected to be made and released in August 2020." 96 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Loads of caramelized peach, toasted spices, brioche, and honeyed citrus emerge from the 2018 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate, one of the richer, more powerful Chardonnay in the lineup. Nevertheless, it has beautiful acidity, flawless balanced, and a great finish. Brought up in 50% new French oak, it's drinking spot on today and shows the vintage nicely. It will also age well for 4-6 years, probably longer, but there's no need to delay gratification." 95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The Chardonnay Ross Station Estate is especially fine in 2018. Rich and explosive in the glass, the 2018 possesses terrific depth and a real sense of energy really drives the orchard fruit and floral flavors. Soaring aromatics and soft contours give this exuberant, inviting Chardonnay tons of sheer appeal. The 2018 is class personified. "
