2018 Paul Hobbs 'Crossbarn' Chardonnay Sonoma Coast
Winemaker Notes: Hailing from cool parcels within the Sonoma Coast appellation, the wine showcases bright straw yellow and opens with aromas of slate, lemon rind, and honeysuckle. Alluring flavors of Gala apple skin and white stone fruit are balanced by a crisp and flinty mineral texture on the midpalate that epitomizes the fruit grown on these fog-washed vineyards. The vibrant acidity provides precision and length that drives a lingering finish.
James Suckling - "A delicious, bright and fruity white with sliced-apple and honey character. Medium body. Crisp acidity to the lovely fruit. Subtle and clean. Drink now. Screw cap."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Chardonnay from Crossbarn is made without oak and bottled early to preserve a clean, crisp style. It has an inviting nose of Red Delicious apples, warm hay, clover honey, saline and crushed shell with loads of warm stone fruits and a toasty note. Light to medium-bodied, it struts the line between fresh citrus and savory character, finishing lifted and refreshing, with a touch of texture."
