"A cleansing, refreshing style, highlighted by bright lemon-grapefruit and green apple flavors. Rich without being weighty, this is a style that will gain after a year or two in bottle. Drink now through 2022. 1,063 cases made. -JL" (WS)

"The 2015 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard has a gregarious white peach, green mango and passion fruit nose with touches of cashews, lightly browned toast and butterscotch. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock-full of zip and zing, with a great intensity of vibrant tropical fruit flavors and a wicked acid backbone, finishing on a lingering mineral note." (WA)

"Orange peel, spice, vanillin and French oak notes all infuse the 2015 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. Pliant and inviting, the 2015 gives the impression it will drink well with minimal cellaring. Like all of these 2015 Chardonnays, the Hyde speaks in hushed tones. This is an especially quiet wine from a site that tends to yield more exuberant Chardonnays." (VM)

"From a site in Carneros owned by the Hyde Family (aka the King of Carneros), the 2015 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers up a deep, rich, yet beautifully fresh style as well as perfumed notes of lemon peel, juicy citrus, and honeyed apples. It picks up a hint of pineapple with time in the glass, has building richness, and powerful yet elegant texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s a beautiful 2015 Chardonnay that’s drinking great today." (JD)

"This sources from blocks planted in 1991 and 1997, older selections that show grace and power in the wine. Exotic in lemongrass, ginger and Asian pear, the vineyard-designate doesn't hold back on supportive Meyer lemon-crisp acidity, enough to balance out the richer concentrated fruit aspects and classic oak. This is delicious." (WE)
