Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
A barrel sample, the 2020 Chardonnay is scented of baked apples and touches of almonds, flint and mushrooms, with those wafts of reduction still taking center stage at this point in time. The palate is medium-bodied, deeply fruited and pleasingly textural, finishing long and spicy.
The 2020 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is sunny with golden pineapple, Meyer lemon, and wet stone. It has a delicately rounded feel on the palate without being weighted down, with fresh pear, orange pith, and green almond. Classic and elegantly expressive of the Russian River Valley, drink it over the next 6 years.
Starts off subtle and taut, with crunchy citrus and pear flavors, flinty minerality and peppery white flower aromatics. Gains momentum and torque on the long finish, expanding into lemon zest and more mineral-driven nuances. Drink now through 2035. 4,500 cases made.
The 2020 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is a very pretty, elegant wine. Soft and silky, with gentle contours, the 2020 is a real pleasure to taste. Lemon confit, chamomile, dried flowers, mint and light pastry notes open effortlessly. This mid-weight, creamy Chardonnay is an absolute delight.
