Another fabulous Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs.  Get the new release while it's available. 93 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Chardonnay Russian River displays lots of orange blossom and honeysuckle characteristics in a full-bodied, exuberant style with admirable minerality as well as good acidity. Drink now-2019... ...Paul Hobbs is undoubtedly one of the world’s finest consultants, and as Americans we’re lucky to have this New York State-born winemaking guru right in the heart of the Russian River, turning out a bevy of wines from both Napa and the following items from their estate vineyards in Sonoma as well as from purchased fruit. Hobbs has a separate entity now, which is aimed at producing good value wines under the Cross Barn by Paul Hobbs moniker. There’s some juicy, high-quality stuff in these cuvées."

Great mouth feel. Flavors of butter, baked apple and apricot. A gorgeous, full bodied Chardonnay. Very elegant.

Not my cup of tea, but I respect the focus on a particular style.

Medium lemon. Aromas are smoke, brewer's yeast, and green apple. Flavors of butter and pear. M+ acidity. Dry. Full body wine with a long finish of bread and butter. Above average but a bit expensive for a Thursday evening run about. Pair with a special meal... thinking lobster with butter. Go for it.

coconut milk, melon, guava, and fennel. creamy and fresh with a fair amount of soft oak, and a bit of spice to add allure - maybe cardamom and hint of clove? paired nicely with some cedar plank grilled salmon. i'd also try an asparagus risotto

Aromatic, creamy, and rich. Lacks the buttery profile synonymous with some Cali chards but maintains a richness that begs second glass.
