Hyde de Villaine (HdV)
Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2017

VinePair
96 Points

Every layer of this wine is in harmony. Soft feels float on the palate, guided by an excellent showing of acidity lifting the wine. Aromas of fancy French butter and a whisper of caramel are balanced and using their inside voices. This is a quintessential American Chardonnay.

Elegantly fruity, with tropical nuances to the rich white fruit and spice flavors that are well-structured. Tangerine hints midpalate lead to a spicy finish that offers brioche accents.

Syrah, Californio – 2017

Vinous
95 Points

Silky tannins add to its sheer appeal. Dark blue/purplish fruit, spice, licorice and menthol are some of the many notes that open in the glass. This distinctly Pinot-leaning Syrah delivers the goods.

It is bold but also rustic, with brawny tannins that add to an impression of wildness. Dark fruit, tobacco, chocolate, spice and strong savory accents fill out the layers.

A solid wine with tile, iron, spice, clove and strawberry character. Full-bodied and very chewy but shows freshness and brightness….Flavorful finish.

Opulent aromas of cooked apple, lemon rind, light praline and stone. Full-bodied with linear and lively acidity that runs through the wine. Energetic and bright with tightness and structure. Steely.

Ygnacia Pinot Noir, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley — 2018

Vinous
94 Points

The 2018 Pinot Noir Ygnacia Hyde Vineyard is stellar. Crushed red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, rose petal and spice all soar out of the glass. Effusive and silky, with tremendous presence, the Ygnacia is a real charmer. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a wine.

Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2017

The Wine Advocate
94 Points

The 2017 Chardonnay opens with pure notes of poached pears, white peach, quince and apple pie plus notions of citrus blossoms, smoke, toast and honeyed hints in the undercurrent—what a superb perfume! The palate is still youthfully wound, offering energetic citrus and mineral-laced fruits, tangy, vibrant and bright and finishing very long and nuanced.

Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2016

The Wine Advocate
95+ Points

Chalky at first, the 2016 Chardonnay takes its time to reveal citrus blossoms, lime peel, crushed stone, apricots and pure lemon and apple fruit with dusty, minerally nuances. The palate walks a wonderful line of pure, ripe fruits and fresh citrusy and rocky accents. It has a silky texture, tangy lift and a very long, nuanced finish. This has the stuffing and structure to be very long lived.

Powerfully structured, with ripe citrus accents to the fresh white fruit and spice flavors, supported by ample acidity. Hints of tropical fruit emerge midpalate, leading to a finish that shows savory richness. Best from 2022 through 2027. 1,561 cases made.

Vinous

The 2015 Belle Cousine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Hyde Vineyard. Dark, pliant and super-expressive, the 2015 is endowed with striking purity and nuance. All the elements are impeccably balanced in this pristine, beautiful wine. Bright red fruit, spice, cedar and floral notes meld together in a silky, captivating wine from Hyde De Villaine. The 2015 is a stunner. That's all there is to it.

The 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is a very pretty wine. Gentle apricot, tangerine, spice, dried flowers and mint are all woven together. Although quite subtle, the 2016 has plenty of structure, it is just expressed in an understated manner. There is so much to admire in this pristine Chardonnay from Hyde De Villaine. Silky and polished, the 2016 will drink well upon release.

This is very dense and tannic with smoky and juicy character, showing walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds. Full-bodied, rustic and real. Very tannic. Austere. Serious. Give it two or three years to soften a little, but I like it!
