HUDSON Chardonnay 2018

(Carneros, Napa Valley, CA) $65

A score of prestigious Napa and Sonoma wineries get their grapes from the vineyards of Hudson Ranch and say so on their labels. But Hudson Ranch also makes its own wines, and their chardonnays in particular have a special beauty. The golden flavors. The creaminess that’s more creamy than cream. The sparks of minerality and flickers of fresh citrus. The deliciously deep and long finish. It is lovely to be reminded of what makes chardonnay compelling. This wine’s more expensive sisters—the tiny- production Hudson chardonnays called “Little Bit” and “Ladybug”—are also rare treats. (14.7% abv)
