94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is bold and racy. Orange peel, mint, tropical fruit and spice all flesh out effortlessly. The 2017 shows all of the creaminess and density that is such a signature of Hyde Chardonnays. Although the 2017 is quite expressive today, my sense is that it will be even better with more time in bottle. Drink: 2020-2027. (Apr 2020)"
93+ points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is still youthfully shy. Aromas of saline, raw almonds, jasmine and white peach lead to a medium-bodied but still mineral-driven palate, with hints of savory nuance to come, finishing long. Give it another few years in bottle. 585 cases produced. Drink: 2021-2028. (Jul 2020)"

Producer notes: "We’ve produced a Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay since 1996 – our first Ramey wine. On the gently rolling slopes of Los Carneros, Hyde Vineyard benefits from marine air flowing through the Petaluma Gap, maintaining a temperature cooler than in the rest of Napa Valley. 585 cases produced. Alcohol 14.5%."
