Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2012 –
Aromas of stone fruit, citrus and delicate spicy notes are expressed on the nose. The palate displays freshness and purity, typical of a cool-climate growing season. The wines precise definition lingers on the palate finishing with the trademark Hyde Vineyard minerality. The 2011 reminisces of the 2007 vintage, as the existing richness will increasingly pronounce itself over time, harmonizing with the natural acidity. In the cellar, this wine will age for years to come and reward throughout the duration of its long life.
