2002 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Medium yellow. Knockout nose combines lime blossom, soft citrus notes, pear and white flowers. Sweet, juicy and penetrating, with highly complex flavors of soft citrus fruits, lime peach, nectarine, flower and mint. At once solid and vibrant. Finishes with palate-staining persistence and terrific grip. A great California chardonnay.
