2014 Davis Estates HudsonChardonnay Napa Valley
From the famed Hudson Vineyard in Carneros, this comes barreling across the palate with melon, green apple and cantaloupe flavors that persist through the creamy, citrusy finish.
Mike and Sandy Davis made a big play with their recent acquisition of some prized land near Calistoga for their up-and-coming winery. And though they may be new to the game (they spent 23 years working together in the technology sector), their instincts and vision will have them atop the mountain in short order. They’re doing things the right way. The 155-acre Calistoga property has been home to wine-growing families since 1873. With an elevation ranging from 50 to 1,400 feet, to say they’re working with a diverse array of soil types and microclimates would be far underselling their options in the vineyard. We got in on this game early. You’d be wise to do the same.
