Paul Hobbs Ellen Lane Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Ellen Lane Estate is a little shy at this youthful stage, offering pretty peach blossom and jasmine notes over a core of ripe apricots and spiced apples, plus a waft of brioche. Full-bodied with a great backbone of freshness cutting through the concentrated stone fruit and mineral flavors, it finishes with great persistence.
Wine SpectatorBig, intense and powerful, gaining vivacity from the fruit purity of the pippin apple, grapefruit and citrus notes and the vibrancy of the acidity. Impressive, with a few edges that should round out to make for a more agreeable experience. Drink now through 2022. 457 cases made.
