The 200-acre Hyde Vineyard, considered one of California’s Grand Cru vineyards, includes one of the oldest blocks of Chardonnay grapes. Carneros has always been considered prime land for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The shallower soil and cooler climates of Carneros result in smaller vines, grapes that turn into brighter, more ethereal wines.
The 2021 Amici Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine that truly captures the essence of Carneros. On the nose, it reveals an enticing blend of strawberry, raspberry, cherry liqueur, and a subtle earthy tone. The palate is equally captivating, with rich and layered flavors of chocolate-covered cherries, brown sugar, and cocoa. Wonderful depth and character lead to a long and memorable finish.
