92 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "[$65 list] The 2017 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard aged on the lees in 38% new oak with weekly bâtonnage. It opens with toast and touches of smoky reduction over warm white peaches, baked quince, chamomile, hay and crushed almonds with an attractive note of crème caramel. It’s medium-bodied with a silky texture and seamlessly woven acidity, finishing long and bright. Richly flavored but lively and crisp. 1,337 cases produced. Drink: 2019-2026. (Dec 2019)"
91 points Wine Spectator: "[$65 list] Rich, plush and well-spiced, with plenty of nutmeg accents to the apple pastry, dried apricot and pear flavors. The creamy finish is long and luscious, showing buttery details. Drink now through 2023. 1,337 cases made. (10/31/19)"
