Slightly more structured, with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors, the 2019 Chardonnay El Diablo Vineyard is stunning wine in the vintage that readers should snatch up. Lemon curd, citrus, wood smoke, and charcoal notes all give way to a perfectly balanced, seamless, concentrated 2019 that’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. All Hyde Wente clone and fermented and aged in 45% new French oak, drink this thriller over the coming 5-7 years. Unfortunately, there are a scant 900 bottles.
