The 2013 Chardonnay Clare comes 100% from the Hyde Vineyard and represents a 22-year-old Wente clone of Chardonnay. This wine displays more buttery brioche notes, hints of tangerine oil and lemon blossom, a subtle, discreet use of oak, loamy soil undertones, and a full-bodied, almost premier cru Meursault-like white Burgundy personality. Complex, rich and multi-layered, this is a beauty to drink over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

DuMOL's tour de force 2013 "clare" bottling is sourced from the highly regarded Hyde Vineyard in Carneros and stands with the finest Chardonnays of the vintage. It is both weighty and full without once seeming top heavy, and, if built on a slightly bigger last, it is exceptionally well-structured. Its effusive, many-layered display of ripe apples, sweet lemons and creamy, wholly complementary oak is immediately striking, yet it reveals more and more with a bit of time in the glass, and its terrific sense of balance and fruity drive is that of a wine that is years away from reaching its best.

This is another wine that readers will need to cellar in order to experience the full range of Hyde. Smoke, slate, apricot pit and dried herbs are some of nuances meld into the finish.

Coming from the Hyde Vineyard on the Napa side of Carneros this Chardonnay shows all kinds of classic Napa markers. On the nose, its full of apple pie, lemon curd, mandarin orange, and candied ginger with those bold elements carrying through to the palate. Rich, round, and full, this Chardonnay is all about texture. It is creamy, buttery, and viscous with tropical and orchard fruit - grilled pineapple, guava, and Tahitian vanilla come to mind. The finish is long and persistent. Drink now – 2022.
