2009 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Pale, bright yellow. Aromatically complex, vibrant scents of lemon, ripe peach, smoke and flinty minerality. Penetrating on the palate and cooler than the nose suggests, offering a captivating combination of stone fruit sweetness and lemony briskness, supported by iodiney minerality. Musky, fine-grained, concentrated wine, still with a bit of oak and acidity to absorb.
