2011 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Ronn Wiegand's Restaurant Wine
152, 153 & 154
The Hudson Vineyard bottling is equally good, in a more firmly structured style. It is full bodied and supple, with excellent depth and balance, and displays a bit more restrained fruitiness (pear, pineapple, lemon peel) than the Hyde. It finishes with overtones of spicy oak and toast.
