Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Sonoma Mountain Cuvée Agustina Richard Dinner Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage of our one and only blended chardonnay is comprised of outstanding fruit from four vineyards. Each of these is located in the cooler, southern portion of the Russian River Valley and contributes its own unique attributes and fruit characteristics. Pale yellow with a slight opalescence in appearance, the aromatics of this wine reveal citrus and crème brûlée with a hint of roasted coffee. The palate displays rich aromas of sautéed fig, apple, and nectarine with just a touch of spearmint. An underlying and intriguing minerality component adds beauty and complexity. This wine is well balanced and focused, and complemented by a lengthy finish. Aged 11 months in French oak, 58% new.

Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary. Read less
