RAMEY Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard Carneros 2012 and RAM’S GATE Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard Carneros 2013 Larry Hyde’s meticulously farmed vineyard in Carneros was the source of both of our two white-wine picks of the bunch for 2015. They are extraordinarily well-crafted Chardonnays from perennially high-scoring producers, and they remind just how significant a great site can be.
