2005 ANDREA OBERTO BAROLO
"Shows wonderful aromas of ripe strawberry and smoky meat. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of flavor. Big, rich and powerful. Tight right now, but shows lots of potential. Best after 2010. 1,000 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator
"Intense and bright garnet-red in colour. Fruity aroma enhanced by a lively acidity with notes of goudron, leather, graphite evolving with the passing of time. Complex in mouth, with polished tannins, evident fruity flavour and firm structure in perfect balance. Long-lasting finish." -Winery
"The fruit is sourced from four different vineyard sites in La Morra and Barolo, covering 3.2 hectares with southwest exposure. The soils are clayey and calcareous. Manual harvesting of the ripe grapes in 20-kg perforated crates through a careful selection of the bunches. It is transfered to the cellar, and is crushed and destemmed within hours and is held in a themo-controlled fermentation at around 32 degrees Celsius, with often and soft pumpovers.
Long maceration of the marcs (about 300 hours); racking in wood casks, where the natural malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine ages for a period of 24 months in oak casks, 2 months in stainless steel vats, and 6 months in bottle." -Winery
"Among the crests of these hills, towards Verduno, lies the Andrea Oberto Winery, which started life as a small family-run concern and now manages an area of 16 hectares of vineyards and a new production facility, which was completed in 2003, producing a range of 10 wines. This substantial production is crowned by the company's true pride and joy, a tribute to the undisputed king of these vineyards: Barolo Brunate, Barolo Rocche and Barolo Albarella, three cru from the finest vineyards in the Barolo production zone, which takes in 11 towns in the Langhe area." -Winery
This scored 89 points both by the Wine Advocate and the International Wine Cellar.
2005 HDV BELLE COUSINE
Aubert de Villaine, co director of DRC
and Larry Hyde are just two of the names behind the exciting HDV project in California.
This wine has a median of 90 points on Cellar Tracker in 4 notes!
"HdV Wines are sourced exclusively from Hyde Vineyards...Covering sedimentary terraces, Hyde Vineyards is blessed with shallow loamy soils and ancient streambeds that work in conjunction with the cool Carneros climate and gentle winds to create moderate hydric stress within the vines. It is this condition of moderate stress that encourages the vines to maximize their potential."
"The 2005 vintage in Los Carneros was cool and slow paced. After an early budbreak in the middle of March, Hyde Vineyards experienced wet weather in May and June. Summer also consisted of cool weather thanks to the San Pablo Bay fog influence. From maturation through harvest, days were sunny and mild, allowing Merlot and Cabernet flavors to develop gradually with pronounced acidity and expressive complexity." -Winery
"The nose features the restraint of the old world contrasted by the opulence of the new world. Showcased are complex aromas of sweet spice and intense black fruit that evolve into black pepper and red fruit with time. Ultimately, a balanced wine with elegant, soft tannins countered with a backbone of fresh, natural acidity. The purity of the fruit lingers on the finish and makes the wine a perfect match for rack of lamb or any dry rubbed steak. The 2005 Belle Cousine favors decanting an hour before serving. It should continue to improve for 10 to 15 years." -Winery
"Joining our venture in 2002, Stephane brings with him skills in vineyard management and winemaking from around the world. Born and raised in France, Stephane's skills were cultivated in the vineyards and cellars of Pommard, Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet and then expanded through his work in Switzerland, New Zealand and finally in the Sonoma Coast Appellation. With a strong background in biochemistry and advanced degrees in enology and viticulture, Stephane turns his focus toward the vineyards and the soils to develop his wines. Stephane works closely with both Aubert and Larry to adapt and implement only the strictest viticultural and vinification techniques of France to the fruit of Hyde Vineyards." -Winery
