2014 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
A little closed at this youthful stage, the 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers subtle honeyed peach, pineapple and passion fruit notes with touches of baking bread and cashews. The palate delivers the goods, packed with rich tropical fruit characters and a toasty/cedary undercurrent, framed by lively acidity and finishing long, with some spices coming through.
