Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2003
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
The gorgeous 2003 Chardonnay Russian River spent 10 months in 55% new French oak and 45% neutral wood. Its light green/gold color is followed by scents of orange blossoms, marmalade, pineapples, and honeysuckle. This full-bodied, attractive Chardonnay is a treat to drink.
A notably rich, buttery, smoky style, with a high toasty oak character and an abundance of ripe pear, hazelnut and hints of citrus and fig. Fans of this woody style will find it especially appealing for its layered complexity and depth. Drink now.
