Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"Sleek and refined, with spicy citrus, pithy lemon peel, anise, smoked fig and roasted marshmallow flavors, gaining depth and persistence on the long, detailed finish."
95 Points

"The 2009 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard comes across as rich, round and layered. Dried apricots, peaches, flowers and tangerine are some of the notes that flow from this sumptuous, well-spoken Chardonnay. The wine turns more and more delicate with time in the glass. I loved it. This is a great showing from Mark Aubert."
95 Points

"Light straw color. Beautiful, open nose suggests campfire, white peach and green pear, with hints of pine and herbs. It reminded some of Burgundy. In the mouth, wine #5 has excellent acidity and "attack." It's a complex wine with a core of sweet fennel seed and minty white bread. Not particularly rich; we suspect that it would pair nicely with food. Keeps getting better as it opens in the glass. Impressive."
