Critical Acclaim

"Rich without being weighty, with intense smoke, spice, nectarine, peach and pear notes that are fresh and vibrant. Gaining depth, ending with a citrusy aftertaste."
93 Points

"The 2010 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard blossoms from the glass with tangerine, lemon, spices and butter. It shows gorgeous minerality and freshness that balances some of the wine’s more overt tendencies. Crushed rocks, lemon peel and mint reappear on the textured, large-scaled finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. "
