2018 Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay
Top Pick!
The cool Carneros region, where San Pablo Bay meets both Napa and Sonoma Valleys, provides beautiful, fresh acidity and the key sense of balance for these fan-favorite Chardonnays. Rombauer has been producing the Carneros-specific Chardonnay since 1990, and the 2018 is another pristine example of this classic style balancing bold fruit and lively acidity.
Price: $36.99

Winemaker's Notes: "Our Carneros District Chardonnay comes from "Shot-Wente Clone" grapes grown on three vineyards: Yamakawa Ranch on Watmaugh Road; the Sangiacomo Family Green Acres Vineyard parcel on Hwy. 121 planted in 1994; the Donnell sisters El Novillero Vineyard at the intersection of Highways 121 and 116, in the hills at the western-most boundary of the Carneros AVA. All three vineyards are in the cool-weather area of Carneros, close to the San Francisco Bay, so ripening is slow and natural fruit acidity is high, making for a wine both fresh and ...

2016 Ramey "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay
Top Pick!
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This producer's blocks were planted in 1991 and 1997 to field selections of both Wente and Robert Young clones. Juicy, tight and tension-filled, it is both complex and high-toned in approach, with looming acidity that freshens in tart lemon-peel, grapefruit and tangerine flavors—a classic and elegant wine. (VB)" (11/2019) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Precise and powerfully structured, with intense Asian pear, apple and ripe citrus flavors that feature rich, savory notes. Displays concentrated minerality on the spicy and textur...

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Catalan-based Cordoníu Raventós started this project in Carneros 25 years ago, and this is the highest score we’ve yet awarded to an Artesa wine. It’s made by Portuguese-born Ana Diogo Draper, who joined Artesa in 2013, becoming director of winemaking in 2015. It’s as targeted as a bee sting, with scents of wildflower honey and beeswax. The texture has some apple-butter richness, but the clarity and freshness of the fruit keeps it bouncy, clean enough to serve with a grilled octopus salad, and substantial enough to take on butt...


96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite in the lineup is the 2016 Chardonnay Green Acres Vineyard, which comes all from the Old Wente clone of Chardonnay and was aged in 40% new barrels. Thrilling notes of stone fruits, tangerines, white flowers, and hints of citrus all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich, layered beauty that has awesome purity and depth of fruit. I love it today yet would give bottles another 6-12 months of bottle age after which it should drink brilliantly for at least 7-8 years." (01/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocat...

Connoisseurs Guide: "Sporting a nice mix of fresh apples and mildly creamy oak on the nose and very much following suit on the palate, the Frank Family Carneros appellation bottling is a moderately full-bodied Chardonnay that lays all of its cards face up on the table. It edges to juicy sweetness without erring to candied confection and is a well-defined, no-nonsense look at the grape that, if not as deep or dramatic as either of its two single-site cellarmates of the same vintage, counts a good deal of straightforward richness on the positive side of it...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is such a lovely white wine, priced attractively, which delivers a heady entry of honey and caramelized oak. Juicy acidity lifts bold flavors of lemon meringue, green apple and tangerine, finishing with a balanced weight and intrigue of nutmeg. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (02/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Dynamic yet elegantly refined, with expressive Asian pear, raspberry and toasted spice flavors that build vibrancy toward a long, steely finish. Drink now through 2019. (TF)" (12/2018) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is made from a majority of Pinot Noir alongside Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Aged three-and-a-half years in bottle, it’s complex and approachable in equal measure. Cherry, peach and a twist of lime round out the lush palate, with integrated acidity underlining its freshness. (VB) " (12/2018)

93 points Vinous: "One of the standouts in this range, the 2011 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard wraps around the palate with dark, intense fruit. Smoke, savory herbs, licorice, tobacco and spices all add complexity in a big, broad-shouldered wine loaded with class and personality. The 2011 finishes with substantial depth and structure. (AG)" (04/2014) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby. Slowly opens up to display scents of dark berries, cherry-cola and mocha, with a brooding note of licorice in the background. Chewy and densely ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Phoenix is composed of 68% Merlot and 32% Cabernet Franc from a collection of four separate vineyards on the ranch. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals an incredible perfume of kirsch, black plums, red currant jelly and red roses with touches of black tea, pencil shavings, cinnamon stick and underbrush plus wafts of black raspberries and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with tons of juicy plums and raspberry inspired flavors with bags of savory and mineral nuances pl...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Grapes for the 2017 Pinot Noir Belly of the Whale come from old vines on the Donum estate, and yields were only one ton per acre. Pale to medium ruby, it has a very pretty perfumed nose of toast, woodsmoke, dried rose petal and violet, perfumed earth, potpourri and autumn leaves, with perfectly ripe blue and red fruits at the core - lots of layers here! Light to medium-bodied and silky in the mouth, the fruits, spice and floral notes interplay beautifully, supported by very fine, granulated tannins and absolutely...

Praise from Lisa Perrotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Hudson Vineyard is a name well-known to lovers of the wines of Northern California. The name is a proudly declared vineyard designation donning the labels of some of the most lauded producers, including Kistler and Kongsgaard. Set over 2,000 acres in the Carneros AVA, Hudson Ranch is quite a sight/site to behold. For many years Lee Hudson and his wife, Cristina, were known purely as growers, assigning parcels of their 200 acres under vine to a wide variety of clients. 'We grow 13 different selections of ...

Campesino Cellars is owned and made by husband/wife Griselda and Macario Montoya (Macario is the winemaker). They honor their Mexican heritage by naming their winery in honor of the Campesinos, the field workers (most of whom are Mexican) who tend to the majority of the vines in California Wine Country. The hands on their Syrah label are those of Griselda’s father Pablo Ceja, a career Campesino. The drawing is the work of Macario’s brother, Maceo Montoya. The wines, all Rhone-style, i.e. made from grapes of Rhone Valley, France origin, are “California st...

Antonio Galloni writes: "Hyde De Villaine, the joint venture between the Hyde and de Villaine families, excels with Old World-leaning wines, especially the Chardonnays."
Price: $59.99

94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is super-distinctive. Grilled herbs, licorice and earthy notes provide a bass register of darkness and depth to support the expressive dark fruit. This is one of the most distinctive Pinots in the Paul Hobbs range. The Hyde is deep, powerful and structured to the core. (AG)" (01/2017) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is beautiful. Coming from a great site in Carneros and aged 11 months in 63% new French oak, it offers a lot of black cherry, spice, forest floor, and hints of o...

94 points James Suckling: "Blueberry cheesecake, ash, bright licorice, orange rind, dried hibiscus and raspberry tea. Medium to full body, fine tannins, lots of tangy blue fruit, pretty acidity and a charcoal, structured finish. Drink now." (05/2018) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard is powerful, dense and savory, with all of the signatures of this site very much in evidence. Inky fruit, leather, earthiness and smoke flesh out in this decidedly virile, imposing Pinot. (AG)" (04/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, rich and con...


93 points Vinous: "What a pleasure it is to taste the 2012 Old Master, Lee Hudson's Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend. Dark, intense and muscular, the 2012 boasts serious depth and fabulous overall balance. The flavors are brooding and inward, yet there is so much going on in the glass. Black cherry jam, spices, grilled herbs and leather open up over time, but it is the wine's pure personality that really shines. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG)" (12/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Old Master Proprietary Red, a blend of 40% Merlot and 60% Ca...

95 points James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of crushed berries and blueberries with hints of flowers and spices. Violets, too. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and beautiful focus and length. So beautiful now but better in 2019. Few hundred cases made now." (05/2017)
Price: $104.99


93 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of strawberries, cranberries, spices and slate. Full-bodied, chewy and fruity yet reserved with a stone, flower and cement undertone. Juicy and intense. Needs at least two or three years to soften. First crop of the vineyard." (12/2017)
Price: $104.99

96 points Vinous: "A wine of depth, creaminess and intensity, the 2014 boasts superb richness and depth. Ginger, orange blossom and candied lemon are some of the signatures, but above all else, the Hudson is a wine of vertical intensity and power. The wine gets better and better with time in the glass. Mark Aubert's Hudson Chardonnay comes from the parcel that David Ramey used to get, in what is considered the heart of the vineyard. (AG)" (02/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "Another dense and layered Hudson Chardonnay with plenty of cream and apple cha...


93 points Decanter: "Robert Sinskey Vineyards is synonymous with exciting and captivating wines, from the sought-after Abraxas Vin de Terroir Alsatian White to ageworthy Pinot Noirs and red blends. Its Los Carneros vineyards at the bottom of the Mt Veeder AVA provide excellent conditions for rosé. This Vin Gris of Pinot Noir captures the vibrancy and generosity of the 2018 growing season and, given the expertise of the team, you can expect a high energy profile with aromas of cherry blossom, yuzu zest and stone fruits, finishing with zippy acidity. (ED)"...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Expansive tones of tangerine and green apple are balanced by bright acidity and stone-like minerality on the palate. The tannins are well integrated and supportive, as is the integrated oak, making this a well-balanced offering. (VB)" (10/2019) 91 points Wine Spectator: " Offers a silky mouthfeel, with flavors of apple tart, lemon curd and apricot. Light, creamy notes emerge midpalate, leading to a sleek, spicy finish that delivers hints of dried green herbs. (KM)" (07/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A salty lick of saline brings the palate to attention before tingling acidity seals the experience: the wine's backbone a nicely balanced combination of generous oak that supports ripe fruit. Francois Freres and Taransaud barrels cradled the wine for 10 months, only 35% of it new, making for a robust yet elegant expression of the variety from this site. *Editors Choice* (VB)" (07/2016)


93 points Vinous: "A huge, powerful wine, the 2013 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard hits the palate with notable intensity. Game, smoke, grilled herbs, licorice and blue/purplish fruit flesh out over time. Savory, dense and at times quite wild, the Hyde is starkly different in style from the other Pinots in this range. Then again, that is Carneros. (AG)" (01/2015) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My tasting notes on these same Pinot Noir cuvées in 2013 revealed slightly smaller production numbers, and wines with more crisp acids, perhaps not the fl...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This sparkling blend of 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay is gorgeous in salmon color, with lithe bright flavors of sea spray, lemon peel and wet stone. Structured and gracefully high toned, it develops richer elements of peach and brioche on the cohesive, complex and lengthy finish. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (11/2019)





95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard sings of ripe cranberries, kirsch and black raspberries with hints of rhubarb, underbrush, spice cake and fragrant soil. Medium to full-bodied, it has a wonderfully soft texture and tons of bold red berry layers, extending to a long, compelling finish with a touch of minerality. 1,015 cases produced, to be released in March 2019.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay Grower Collection El Novillero has a lovely nose of white apricot and peach with apple pie, honey toast, toasted hazelnut, wet stone and creamy lemon. Medium-bodied, it packs a punch of flavor in the mouth with great layers of ripe fruits, savory/toasty notes and creamy citrus plus suggestions of white blossoms, with refreshing acidity to lift the long, long flavorful finish. This is all class. 94+ (EB)" (04/2019) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also from Carneros, the 2017 Chardonnay Chappellet Gro...

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great Syrah, the 2013 Syrah Hudson Vineyard from Carneros includes 50% whole clusters and was cofermented with 3% Viognier. Tasting like a California version of a Côte Rôtie, it offers up notes of bacon fat, lard, meaty cassis and black raspberries, and a floral undercurrent. This fabulous, full-bodied, opulent, juicy, succulent, sexy Syrah should age effortlessly for a decade or more. (RP)" (12/2014) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Hudson Vineyard presents quite a contrast to the Griffin's Lair. Here...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lovely flowery, tar, and blackberry aromas emerge from the 2005 Syrah Hudson Vineyard along with a subtle hint of lard. Dense and full-bodied with lovely fruit on both the attack and mid-palate, this opulent Syrah is ideal for drinking over the next 5-7 years. (RP)" (12/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Intensely spiced bitter cherry aroma is deepened by cured meat and graphite. Supple and fine-grained, with sweet dark berry flavors, gentle acidity and a bright mineral li...
