WTN: Seek the Hyde

2017 Massican Chardonnay Hyde Vineyards - USA, California, Napa Valley (4/23/2018)
Barely off the truck, this was an impressive vintage of Massican Hyde. It was a little bit broader than prior vintages, giving it some early appeal, with deep minerality/saltiness, a beautiful, subtle spiciness, and loads of lemon citrus. The mid-palate fanned out a little bit, with a closer focus to the finish. It was clearly Hyde, bearing a distinct resemblance to the Ramey Hyde, despite the difference in picking strategies and winemaking. Early days here, but this was lovely.
