2004 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
December 22, 2006
Always my favorite, this wine has extraordinary intensity, with wonderful tropical fruit interwoven with orange blossom, white peach, and some mixed tropical fruits, even a hint of litchi. The undeniable minerality and floral notes add to the complexity of this stunningly full-bodied, opulent, but well-delineated wine. It should drink well for 5-8 years, possibly longer.
