Wow. This is just awful stuff. Loaded with oak and diacetyl. And sulfur. Boo Napa valley. Boo

Deep gold color. Intense nose of tropical and stone fruit, pastry, all backed by lemon notes. Full body, oily with a fair amount of oak. Long finish. Great wine, but even better if you like the style.

Giddy as a schoolgirl to try another vintage of Hyde. This wine has a rather fruit forward nose with a hint of herbs and crushed rock. The entry is very balanced between a mineral rich Chardonnay and a fruit rich Asian pear and under ripe peach. The middle of this wine turns rather dense, and finishes with rounder edges. This wine typically doesn't get the scores that the other SVD chardonnays receive. Fine by me, as it is usually the most available and my personal fave. This one will hold for a while!

Easily one of the best wines I’ve tasted, and the top chard. Gave it a few hours of integrated slow ox.
