HDV 2018 Chardonnay Hyde
2019 HDV Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard Carneros
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95 Points
Deep, focused and densely packed, the nose of this fine Chardonnay offers aromas of tarte tatin, apple skin, golden berry, dried golden fig, honey, vanilla wafer, baking-spice an flint. It is fuller and a bit less tense on the palate, where more dramatic, tongue-coating flavors of honey, peach, apple, fig, preserved Meyer lemon, vanilla, nougat and flint/chalk mineral notes fan-out and linger impressively. Expect another eighteen to twenty-four months of steady improvement.
