Wine Review: This slightly cloudy straw-colored Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs is excellent and was very well received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a coconut and pineapple bouquet with hints of lemon and Anjou pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, round and a bit juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty coconut custard and pineapple blend with notes of superbly integrated mild minerality and oak. We also detected hints of vanilla, green apple and butter in the mix. The Panel would prefer to drink this Chard on its own. However, with food we would pair it with pan-seared Chilean sea bass recipe. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A composition of five distinct vineyards, our newest vintage brings a youthful pale straw color and fragrant citrus blossom and white florals. Lively flavors of Golden Delicious apple and fresh peach emerge on the palate that give way to complex notes of lemon meringue and baking spice. Refined and focused, the finish is long and lifted, framed by a cool minerality and refreshing acidity.
