2016 Patz & Hall Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Los Carneros
Patz & Hall’s 2016 Hyde….here are all the vineyard’s textbook layered aromas of fresh peach, orange peel, walnut, wet earth, cardamom and fennel bulb. On the palate there is a mineral-driven energy that adds poise and clarity to the lush, forward flavors, with notes of wet stone and tart green apple drawing the wine. Another triumph from one of America’s most hallowed Blue Chip Chardonnay producers. It’s a great price!
