About This Wine
Fruit sourced from the Hyde Vineyard in Carneros. The nose expresses pear, spice and orange peel undertones. On the palate the ubiquitous HdV minerality lingers in harmony with stone fruit and apricot characteristics. The multilayered palate is carried through by a steadying, persistent acidity for a long finish. A wine that displays the power of California fruit in part to the warmer weather yet is tempered by the restrained qualities that are Hyde Vineyard’s trademark minerality and freshness.

Wines from Napa Valley
One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism. The Napa Valley started to bring worldwide recognition to California’s winemaking abilities after finding success in the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976. Both a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were submitted which bested several famous French labels in a blind tasting. These results cemented Napa’s reputation for being able to produce wines equal to that in quality of the very best from the Old World.
In red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley today, covering half the land and commanding the highest prices per ton. Straight Napa Cabernet is one of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, a marvellous addition to any wine collection or cellar. With such high-quality Cabernet production, many winemakers also focus on creating fine Bordeaux blends. Other notable red wine varietals produced in the Napa include: Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc.
The most prominent whites from the Napa are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
