Excellent golden color with a subtle haze. Scents of pear and honey. Flavors of pear and and hints of melon but only modestly sweet on the mid-palette with just a touch of honey towards the finish. Crisp and well balanced.

Hazy gold. Leesy, buttery orange and white peach aromas, with a bright peppery lift. Round and supple, with ripe pit fruit and tangerine flavors, gentle acidity, and a suggestion of sweet butter on the back. A distinctly warm, easygoing chardonnay, finishing with good length.

This is still a bit awkward, but rich and concentrated, with smoky, cedary oak now holding an edge over the ripe pear and floral notes. The finish holds a focus on the fruit. Drink now through 2010.

The 2006 Chardonnay Russian River offers abundant amounts of hazelnut and tropical fruits in an elegant, medium-bodied style. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 years.

Good pale color. Leesy aromas of lemon, lime and pit fruits, with a cool suggestion of menthol. Plump and rich but nicely firmed by fresh acidity. Rather soft flavor of mirabelle.

The elegant 2004 Chardonnay Russian River offers up notions of citrus oil and white peaches in a medium-bodied, refreshing style with great fruit as well as subtle wood. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

The only blended Chardonnay made by Hobbs, sourced from four vineyards in the cooler, southern portion of the Russian River Valley. Pale yellow with a slight opalescence; the aromatics reveal citrus and crème brûlée with a hint of roasted coffee. The palate displays rich flavors of sautéed fig, apple, and nectarine with just a touch of spearmint. An underlying and intriguing minerality component adds beauty and complexity. Well-balanced and focused, and complemented by a lengthy finish.

Well-executed in a rich, smoky, toasty oak style, with layers of spicy fig, apricot, honeysuckle and melon flavors that fan out and coat the palate, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2011.

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Greenish gold. Complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, tangerine, pear and iodine, with a suave floral overlay. Juicy, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit flavors provide impressive palate coverage and carry no excess weight. Gains in richness with air and finishes with excellent clarity and mineral cut. This could pass for a Puligny. (5/09)
