"Mark Aubert is a master of California Chardonnay, and Larry Hyde owns one of the most coveted vineyard sites in the Carneros district of southern Napa County."
Wine Spectator’s #6 Wine of 2018 – 2016 Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay.
"A barrel sample (aging in about 70% new oak), the 2017 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard opens with a gloriously gregarious, exotically scented nose of gingerbread and lemongrass with a core of pineapple, green guava and mango plus a hint of honeycomb. The palate is big, rich, super opulent and sexy with fantastic texture, concentration and seamless freshness, finishing long. (LPB) (10/2018)"
96-98 Pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"This shows lots of flesh and richness, yet it remains very fresh and energetic. Lots of ginger and baked apples with hints of cream, lemon and lime. February 2019 release. (1/2019)"
96-97 Pts James Suckling
