2009 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Ronn Wiegand's Restaurant Wine
The Hyde Vineyard is full but restrained in style, and will benefit from several more months of aging. It is round and complex, with excellent balance, and refined aromas/flavors (kiwi fruit, pineapple, lemon peel, roasted nut, spicy oak). Very persistent finish.
