Moving to the Carneros releases, the 2018 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard comes from the Block E section of this larger vineyard, which is one of the original blocks planted in the 1980s. It offers a subtle marine-influenced minerality and iodine character as well as beautiful stone fruits, crushed citrus, flower oil, and honeycomb-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with racy acidity and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality, it's one of the finest Chardonnays in the vintage.

The 2018 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard begins with mineral notes of crushed shell and flint, slowly transforming into aromas of apricots, white peach and quince with accents of salted almonds, cut hay and white blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is still rather coiled at this youthful stage, hinting at savory layers yet to emerge, with fresh, uplifting acidity and a long, gently yeasty finish.
