"Luminescent pastel gold in color, this chardonnay has an aromatic mélange of stone fruit with hints of lemon zest. The juicy palate is filled with slowly unfolding layers of gala apple, nectarine, and apricot with subtle notes of brioche & lees. The round texture is accentuated by vibrant acidity and a pronounced, mineral-driven finish." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
CrossBarn Chardonnay comes from Sonoma Coast vineyards handpicked by Hobbs and CrossBarn winemaker Greg Urmini to drive value while showcasing the unique aspects of the region. This 2014 installment is a marvel of fresh-cut lemon and crisp ripe apple notes, with small fraction of the wine undergoing barrel aging to balance the acidity and ensure that the final wine is harmonious. This is the wine you'll want to sip on the porch or by the pool as the weather warms up!
"The less expensive label for Paul Hobbs is his Crossbarn label. He has done a magnificent job of elevating the quality of these wines, which are all made from purchased fruit. Take, for example, the Crossbarn 2014 Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. There are over 16,000 cases of this wine, which is bone-dry. Ten percent is barrel-fermented, and the rest aged in steel, so it is essentially a naked style of Chardonnay, and the 2014 is just a beauty, with crisp acidity, notes of apple blossom, tangerine oil and honeyed lemons in an extroverted, beautifully pure and natural style. This is delicious, and a terrific value in Chardonnay to drink over the next few years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
