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. This is its Inaugural release!
Tasting Notes: This stunning Paul Lato Hyde Vineyard offers up a basket full of aromas that jump out of the glass. The wine is loaded with tons of dark red fruit, spices, a hint of mixed herbs, and licorice. This bold, lush youngster is loaded with class and pedigree and tons of generous fruit that is balanced with the right touch acidity. The lush flavors of this remarkable wine lead smoothly into a textured, silky finish.
Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: ”All destemmed and brought up in plenty of new oak (80%), the ruby/plum-hued 2018 Magic Moments Hyde Vineyard offers up a ripe, perfumed bouquet of Bing cherry, blood orange, violets, black tea, and forest floor. This silky, medium to full-bodied effort brings plenty of sweet fruit, yet it stays light, elegant, and flawlessly balanced.”
