Close your eyes and you might think it is a Meursault. However, there is a small edge in the wine that gives away that is Napa Carneros.

Walking the fine line of precision and richness. This wine has lots of energy yet feels so round and weighty on your palate. Fantastic CA chardonnay

2012 HdV Hyde vineyard Chardonnay from Carneros.
Lovely lemon nuisances in the nose with vanillin oak overlay. Creamy rich Chardonnay flavors beautifully balanced with moderate vanillin oak flavors. Had with crab cakes.

Clean with notes of white fruits. Solid oak backbone, so I recommend serving it chilled so it doesn't come off top heavy. Been a while since I had a Californian chardonnay and this was the right bottle to come back with.
