2020 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 2020 Chardonnay has a detailed, pretty perfume of white peaches and quince, with touches of lemongrass, green herbs and white flowers. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and fragrant, with a supporting streak of fresh acidity, and there's a touch of phenolic texture that draws out the long finish."
James Suckling - "A lovely nose of lemon peel, small white flowers and wet stones. Medium-to full-bodied and lean. Bright acidity with driving mineral character. Green apple and citrus come through. Floral finish."
