Comments From The Winemaker
 
 
Marlene Rossman’s Review:

“Textbook, cool-climate Chardonnay— ripe (but not sweet) with flavors of Meyer lemon, white peach, honeysuckle and crème brulee.

This Chard is well-balanced and has good acidity to pick up on the luscious fruit.”

 

Production Notes from Paul Hobbs:

“Growing season 2010 began with a wet winter and spring across Sonoma County. Summer was cool, though as harvest approached temperatures rose. Our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ripened fully and evenly, allowing sugars and acid to develop in balance. The wines from 2010 are bright, expressive and elegant.”
