Product Description

The 2014 Ramey Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay are sourced from predominantly Wente clone Chardonnay which produces a clean, crisp, Burgundian-style wine rather than the big, tropical style. Lightly spicy oak is balanced, with bright citrus fruit and high natural acidity keeping the palate light and refreshed.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chardonnay
Appellation: Carneros AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 20 months in French oak, 31.5 percent new

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This bold, beautiful wine has toasted, oaky undertones that support concentrated layers of apple skin, caramelized crème brûlée and a texture of gritty minerality. Papaya, mango and baked pineapple tug at the palate amidst a strong streak of stone." -VB, 9/1/17

93 Points - Vinous Media
"(14.6% alcohol; aged in 31% new oak but almost no once-used barrels): Bright, light yellow. Brisk, racy aromas of lemon curd, anise and minerals. Still tightly wound and a bit oaky but already shows a lovely combination of lemony lift, glyceral texture and butterscotch richness. Perhaps a bit less powerful than the 2013 and 2012 bottlings." -ST, 7/2017

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"A little closed at this youthful stage, the 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers subtle honeyed peach, pineapple and passion fruit notes with touches of baking bread and cashews. The palate delivers the goods, packed with rich tropical fruit characters and a toasty/cedary undercurrent, framed by lively acidity and finishing long, with some spices coming through." -LPB, 2/28/17

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Tight and well-centered on vibrant white peach, nectarine, lime and citrus themes, ending clean and lively, showing just a hint of oak. A good candidate for short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2021. 1,247 cases made." -JL, 6/15/17
