Paul Hobbs Richard Dinner Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
A mainstay in our portfolio since 1991, the 2017 vintage presents a deep straw color with aromas of ripe Bosc pear, orange blossom, and holiday spice. Balanced and layered on the entry, flavors of brioche, Meyer lemon, and yellow apple complement the wine’s structural depth and weight, carried along by an overall freshness that builds through the long finish and frames its lively acidity. Pair with Fromage de Meaux or New England style clam chowder garnished with fresh parsley.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard charges forth with notes of spiced apples, pear tart and brioche with touches of butterscotch, lime blossoms and coriander seed plus a waft of mandarin peel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is still very tightly wound, with a compelling backbone of freshness cutting through the intense citrus and savory layers, finishing long and mineral laced. 597 cases produced, to be released in March 2019.
