Omg, good. As I told my wife, the bad news is we only have one more 750ml bottle left. The good news is we have 3 magnums. Her reply: but we can’t drink a magnum by ourselves and I don’t want to share!

Deep gold color with typical California Chardonnay nose; moderate oak. Lacks minerality of Burgundy. Nice for consuming now but would not age it more than 4-6 years.

This is not Hyde Chardonnay... In place of spice there is melon and honeysuckle, with ample oak (too much?) Not my favorite Hobbs, but still very good. Balanced movement fans should look elsewhere.
