Still needs a 30 minute + decanting. Such a well-made wine.

16’ Paul Hobbs Ross Station Chardonnay. Throw this into a decanter for an hour. Certainly won’t hurt it
Bright golden color. Nose smells like honeycomb, crushed rock. Palate- apricot, peach, toasted hazelnut. Medium to full-bodied & intensely flavorful in the mouth, it's balanced by very juicy acidity. Nicely made Chardonnay.

Dryed honey, smoke and chalk. Focused acid great tension and length on the finish. 94+ easy!

16’ Paul Hobbs Ross Station Chardonnay. It offers up notes of lemon blossom, white peach, pineapple, honey & subtle oak. With wavy acidity. A full-bodied Chardonnay for sure. Edit - Needs a year or so in bottle after release.

Smokey, Flint and citrus, reminiscent of a 1er Cru Puligny. Great depth and intensity, beautifully balanced. This is a terrific example of New World fruit meeting Old World savoir faire. Entrancing

Extraordinary in its depth and elegance. Gunsmoke, beeswax, candied citrus zest, flint, apple, a whole host of flavors and aromas. Wild yeast preserves a sense of place and yields a wine that is Complex and extravagantly delicious. Think Meursault meets the Pacific

Hard to find a better pairing with lobsta than a California Chardonnay, happy 4th!

Lemon oil, orange peel, star fruit, and vanilla. Medium acidity and body, high alcohol, with a long and pure finish.
