2008 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros

Winemaker Notes

Also north of the Carneros Highway, but further west, the terrain here is more rolling than that of Hyde, the soil lighter and more friable. This year's bottling is the second to come entirely from B-block, planted in 2001 to a Wente selection from the Hyde Vineyard, so the vines were eight years old this vintage and further developing their maturity. Hudson Vineyard wines tend to a more muscular, masculine character—broad-shouldered, if you will.
