Ramey Wine Cellars Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
WE100: This is a stunner from blocks planted in 1997 and 1999. Beautiful aromas of toasted hazelnut and stone lead to a palate that shows undeniable minerality paired with lasting acidity. It shows freshness and energy throughout. Drink 2026–2032.
WS95: Powerful, sleek and well-structured, with rich minerality and savoriness to fresh-cut apple and pear flavors, backed by crackling acidity. Dried mint and sea salt accents linger on the spicy finish, with toasty notes. Best from 2022 through 2027.
