2004 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Dec 2006-Jan 2007
Vol. 32, No. 6, p. 110
Medium-light golden yellow color; attractive, forward, intense, slightly floral, toasty, spiced pear aroma with notes of hazelnut, charred oak, vanilla, and butterscotch; medium-full body; rich, complex, toasty, spicy, pear and citrus flavors; well balanced and structured; crisp, steely finish; lingering aftertaste. Should continue to develop and improve with several more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.
