This top tier gift set contains two outstanding wines from the Paul Hobbs Winery in the Sonoma Coast, California. Both the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir are extremely highly regarded, scoring 90+ points at Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A truly elevated gift experience.
Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay
A bright and refreshing chardonnay bursting with aromas of crisp green apple, white peach, and a touch of citrus blossom. With notes of fresh pear, kumquat, and lime zest, the palate is charged by an electric minerality and brisk acidity that blends seamlessly through to a vibrant finish. Ideal pairings include mushroom & asparagus frittata or Crab Louie.
90 Pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2019 Chardonnay is fresh and bright, offering aromas of green pears, baker's yeast, crushed stone and white blossoms. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and uplifted with crisp fruits and a mineral driven finish."
Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Pinot Noir
Crossbarn Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a complex and balanced wine with vibrant aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, and plum, complemented by hints of earth, spice, and floral notes. On the palate, it displays flavors of ripe red and black fruit, followed by a long, smooth finish with well-integrated oak and fine-grained tannins. Sophisticated and elegant, this Pinot Noir pairs well with grilled salmon, roasted poultry, or mushroom risotto.
92 Pts James Suckling
"Extremely fresh and fruity with plums and dried strawberries, as well as a citrus-peel undertone. Full body, light tannins and a delicious finish. Fruit-forward pinot noir."
"Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir is made with about 72% estate fruit and very little oak. It's a fresh style with open-knit aromas of roast cranberry and rhubarb with touches of dried leaves, soil and tar. The palate is medium-bodied, bright and juicy with good concentration and spiciness and a lifted finish. Enjoy it over the next two to three years. 19,500 cases produced."
