This fine marriage of site and winemaker shows experience and intuition at work, presenting a full-bodied, lush and plush expression of tremendous depth and complexity. It offers notes of tart apple, licorice and a wealth of orange zest, which adds a touch of citrusy crispness to the naturally buoyant minerality and nuanced oak. It has much more to share; drink now through 2020. *Ranked #1 on Top 100 of 2016, Cellar Selection* (VB)
Intense aromas of sliced clementines, lemon rind and stones. Lime, too. Medium to full body and tangy acidity. A wine that attracts you with its aromas.
The 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is another wine made from the Hyde/Wente clone of Chardonnay that is small-berried and sees about 45% new French oak. The wine shows crisp, elegant citrus oil notes, pear, honeysuckle and a touch of tangerine oil (or is it orange marmalade?). The wine reveals great acidity and loads of citrus fruit. It is a completely different expression of the Wente clone from the Hyde and Hudson vineyards – and all the better for it. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. (RP)
Elegantly styled and deftly balanced, with a mix of spicy oak, light pear, peach and nectarine flavors, shaded by subtle nutmeg notes. Gains depth and nuance. (JL)
