Hyde de Villaine Napa Valley Red 2002
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
|Brand||Hyde de Villaine|
This is a wine rich in oak, flavorful berry-cherry flavors and sturdy tannins. It's young now, with a rather rasping mouthfeel, but is balanced. Turns a bit sharp on the finish, but should improve in the short haul. Drink now through 2006.
Sleek and supple, with polished currant, black cherry, cedar and fresh earth scents. Wins points for elegance and delicacy. Finishes with firm, integrated tannins. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2006 through 2012. 887 cases made.
