Impressive Wine project by Paul Hobbs’ disciple

The Trombetta story began around the family table with food harvested from their garden paired with wines they loved. The Trombetta family’s journey into winemaking commenced in the mid 80’s as home winemakers. A passion was ignited and they pursued learning winemaking at Santa Rosa junior College and UC Davis. An opportunity to work side by side with Paul Hobbs in 1998 changed their hobby into a passionate pursuit of wine making. One night at dinner Paul discovered their daughter Erica’s palate at age 10. Encouraging Erica’s talent, Paul walked vineyards around Napa and Sonoma counties with her. In 2010 Erica graduated from California State University Fresno with her degree in enology. She flew to Mendoza, Argentina to intern at Vina Cobos (Paul Hobbs’ Argentina project).  Erica worked a few years at Rudd Estate before becoming headwinemaker at Paul Hobbs’ Cross Barn winery, and also the head winemaker at Trombetta.

Robert Parker 93 Points: “The 2015 Chardonnay Four Brothers Vineyard opens with struck match/sulfides notes, giving way to lemon tart, pink grapefruit and ripe peach notes with hints of baker’s yeast, marzipan and ginger. Medium-bodied with a fine, fresh and elegant palate, the intense citrus and savory flavors are supported by a racy acid line; the finish is long and toasty.”

Winemaker notes: “Rich aromatics of fresh white peach skin, pear, guava and stone fruit. Crisp acid, and lingering fresh fruit on the palate. Hints of tropical fruit in finish.”
