($65) Medium yellow with a fresh green tinge. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of orange oil, minerals and coconut, lifted by a minty topnote. Highly concentrated, bright and tightly wound, with exhilarating flavors of tangerine, orange pith and minerals. Quite backward, and yet this is more about fruit than the Hyde bottling. Very fresh wine, but not yet expansive.

Wine Advocate | 90-92

The 2003 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block has crisp acidity and a big, smoky, hazelnut-scented nose with a hint of ripe pear and various tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. It is a traditional California Chardonnay with the oak well-integrated and the acidity zesty, giving uplifting vibrancy.

Exotic and smoky, with layers of fig, honeysuckle, citrus and marshmallow flavors that are full-blown and mouthcoating, ending with a smoky campfire aroma. 522 cases made.
