Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River Valley Crossbarn 2011
Opalescent pale yellow in color, with refreshing aromas of crisp gala apple and lime zest, this chardonnay is mouth-filling and lively from start to finish. A burst of bright stone fruit opens to silky layers of apple, pear and citrus that glide over the palate; yeasty overtones and mineral notes add elegance over a long finish.
External Reviews for Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River Valley Crossbarn
Complex and well-built, offering modest flavors and medium weight, with notes of spicy apple and light cedary oak, ending with honeydew melon and honeysuckle accents. Drink now through 2016.
The 2011 Chardonnay has quite a bit more energy than the 2010. This is a decidedly wiry vintage for the 2011 Russian River bottling. Bright floral notes meld into citrus in this striking, vibrant Chardonnay. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.
