Hudson Vineyard

2014 Carneros Chardonnay

Once again, Hudson Vineyard has yielded a spectacular wine with a decadent fruit nose highlighting pear, green apple, honey and dried pineapple. Beneath these pure, lifted aromas, layers of hazelnut, almond, distant campfire and fresh-brewed coffee offer a sophisticated counterpoint to the vibrant fruit. Both rich and refreshing on the palate, flavors of peach and pineapple are supported by a lovely balance between coursing acidity and a supple mouthcoating quality.

    “10 Tantalizing California Chardonnays”
    “Shows a distinct oak profile, with a charry, toasty edge that casts a campfire scent over the fresh, vibrant mix of citrus-laced green apple and honeydew flavors. Ends with a lingering touch of marmalade. Drink now. 374 cases made.”— James Laube

    "The 2014 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard (374 cases) is stunning. The wine saw 45% new French oak, but otherwise was treated identically to the Sonoma Coast bottling. This is from their three-acre block that has a special Hudson/Wente clone of Chardonnay planted. Smoky hazelnut notes suggest a Premier Cru from Meursault. The wine offers up poached pear and a touch of white peach in a full-bodied, delicious, sumptuous style with great acidity and a long, long finish. It is certainly one of the most impressive wines in the entire lineup and should drink nicely for 4-5 years. 2016 – 2021" - Robert Parker
