2019 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.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2019 Chardonnay is fresh and bright, offering aromas of green pears, baker's yeast, crushed stone and white blossoms. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and uplifted with crisp fruits and a mineral driven finish."
Jeb Dunnuck - "Coming from the incredibly talented team of Paul Hobbs under his Crossbarn label, the 2019 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast boasts a light gold hue as well as a racy, vibrant, medium-bodied style carrying lots of crushed citrus, lemon, and sappy herb-like aromas and flavors. Nicely balanced, it plays in the more vibrant, acid-driven side of the spectrum yet has a beautiful finish. It’s just a classic Sonoma Coast Chardonnay that will undoubtedly keep for at least 3-5 years."
