A delicate pale gold in color, this cool climate chardonnay boasts fresh aromas of pomelo, baked pear galette and chamomile flower. The wine is juicy and pure on the palate with flavors of apricots, lime chiffon pie and white tea. The texture is round and vibrant with a long, polished finish.

Wine EnthusiastA tremendously well-made Chardonnay at the price and production levels, this is lean in high-toned acidity but offers tropical goodness, a swath of lime throughout. Balanced and tense, the twist of lime comes back on the finish. This is a great wine to stock up on for larger gatherings.

Wine AdvocateNearly 12,400 cases were made of the 2013 Chardonnay Cross Barn by Paul Hobbs, all from the Sonoma Coast. It sees about 10% new oak, as the emphasis is on minerality and loads of fruit, and that's exactly what one gets in this beauty. Notes of orange blossom, caramelized citrus, lemon oil, wet stones and a hint of pineapple and mango are all present in this wine that has largely been aged in stainless steel to preserve its freshness and vibrancy. It's medium to full-bodied, tasty, and likely to last for 2-3 years, possibly longer.
