Vinous | Rating: 93The weight and power of the vintage really come through in the 2015 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard, and yet the wine doesn't feel quite put together just yet. Even so, there is good depth and creaminess to the tropically-leaning flavors, along with that super-classic hint of matchstick reduction that is such a signature of Hudson Chardonnays. In this tasting, the Hudson is a bit awkward. I would give it another 6-12 months in bottle.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Though taut and zesty, this offers a light touch of smoky oak that adds dimension and depth, leaving room for development.Author: James Laube
