13' Paul Hobbs Ellen Lane Estate Chardonnay. This wine is even better than it was last year. The color is a little darker & the wine has come together nicely. The fruit has come forward in the wine. The oak is a lot more restrained. An abundance of tropical fruits. With a drop of honey. Nice balance. Edit- Damn this is good!

Rich and opulent, still great acid to keep it lifted and clean. Really quite beautiful.

Fantastic Chard!! Incredible nose. Beautiful malolactic fermentation Chard. Oaky and nice drawn finish. Delicious fruit flavor. Love it!! One of our favorites for sure. Tasted it at Paul Hobbs' winery in Sebastopol in May 2016, just Peter & Kylah.
