Larry Hyde

Pinot Noir
Los Carneros

10 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% small-lot Pinot Noir from the acclaimed Hyde Vineyard in the Los Carneros nested appellation
  • These grapes are exclusive to Hyde Estate; no one besides the family has access
  • Larry Hyde and his son, Christopher, hand-selected and planted these vines in 2006
  • Hand-harvested and hand-sorted prior to aging in 30% new French oak

After 30 years of providing grapes exclusively to clients , Larry Hyde planted a small-lot Pinot Noir block with his son, Christopher, to make an exclusive estate wine with fruit that no one besides the family has access to. This unique 100 percent Pinot Noir comes from the Los Carneros nested appellation, which provides slow ripening and slow accumulation of sugars while maintaining natural acidity, the ideal climate for Pinot Noir. Hand-harvested and hand-sorted, this block of grapes is not only one of Larry’s favorites, but indicative of the unique Hyde Vineyard terroir.
