You are probably saying, what Paul Lato in Napa…. Yes, Larry Hyde has been a big fan of Paul Lato and vice versa. So it was only a matter of time until Paul would source from this California Premier Cru vineyard.
Tasting Notes: The 2018 vintage is probably one for the history books!. The wine is very refined and expressive, with ripe citrus aromas, and a deep core of rich pear and honeydew melon flavors that bring fantastic complexity. The finish is filled with a touch of butter, a hint of toasted hazelnut and refreshing acidity.
Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points: “From the cooler Carneros region of Napa Valley, the 2018 Goldberg Variations Hyde Vineyard is another Chardonnay that’s up with the crème de la crème of California. Lots of ripe peach and nectarine fruits, subtle tropical notes, plenty of spice and brioche, medium to full-bodied richness, and a juicy, lengthy finish all make for a killer wine to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years.”
