2018 Paul Hobbs "Richard Dinner Vineyard" Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay

SKU #1483145 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Last of the Chardonnay and first made in 1991, the 2018 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard comes from a vineyard in the Sonoma Mountain AVA and spent 15 months in 53% new French oak. It's certainly the most exotic Chardonnay in the lineup, with a complex bouquet of Meyer lemons, flower oil, toasted spice, candle wax, and honeyed citrus. Rich, full-bodied, and stacked on the palate, it has loads of fruit, vibrant acidity, and a great finish. It's another powerful, concentrated Chardonnay. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard is quite floral and perfumed in this vintage. Jasmine, white pepper, mint and lemon peel give the 2018 a brilliant aromatic upper register. In most vintages the Richard Dinner Chardonnay is distinguished by more of a phenolic character, but the 2018 is all about lift and energy. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense, rich chardonnay with a solid core of fruit and a pointed center palate. Full-bodied, focused and fruity, yet reserved at the same time. A savory and delicious wine to drink now. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Still in barrel, the 2018 Chardonnay Richard Dinner Vineyard opens slightly rubbery and with coiled aromas at this stage. It takes some time to give up musk and floral blossoms over spiced pears, quince, stone and spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's restrained in the mouth with crunchy, floral-laced fruits, well-woven freshness and a long finish. This just needs time. (EB) 91-93+ Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Custardy aromas are matched to apple pastry, dried apricot and pear tart flavors in this lusciously spicy style. The creamy richness extends to light buttery notes on the finish. (KM) Inner quote mark (8/2020)
