Hyde de Villaine is a joint venture between Larry Hyde and Aubert de Villaine. Aubert is one of Burgundy's most recognised individuals, as co-director of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and director of his own wine company, A. & P. de Villaine. Larry comes from one of oldest farming families around Napa and brings to the partnership more than 30 years’ experience in California. Together with winemaker Stéphane Vivier they apply the traditions of the Côte d'Or to the fruit of the Napa, thus producing wines of regional character.
A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon which was matured in barrel for 19 months, with 20% new French oak used. Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Lifted ripe blackcurrant and dark cherry aromas intermixed with cedar arise from the glass with subtle dried herb, scorched earth and spice scents also present. Medium to full bodied with beautiful richness the palate is perfectly balanced. Ripe blackcurrant and dark cherry flavours fill the palate wrapping it up in a soft supple, yet opulently refined textural feel. Cedar, subtle scorched earth and spice nuances are also evident. Velvety tannins perfectly integrated to the fruit. Superb depth with a very long finish of ripe blackcurrant, dark cherries, cedar, faint scorched earth notes and spice.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
