JEB DUNNUCK 97 POINTS - "A great California success story, Polish immigrant Paul Lato started as a cellar hand in a Santa Maria co-op/custom crush and has worked his way up to being one of the leading producers of artisanal, world class wines in California today. Lato fashions a bevy of wines (I would normally say too many, yet given the quality he's able to achieve, the more the merrier) including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. These aren't lightweight wines, yet they never lose their sense of balance and elegance. I always describe the wines as having a slightly Old World style, but with one foot planted firmly in California. As I hope the reviews show, his 2018s are incredible wines across the board."

"From the cooler Carneros region of Napa Valley, the 2018 Goldberg Variations Hyde Vineyard is another Chardonnay that's up with the creme de la creme of California. Lots of ripe peach and nectarine fruits, subtle tropical notes, plenty of spice and brioche, medium to full-bodied richness, and a juicy, lengthy finish all make for a killer wine to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay Goldberg Variations Hyde Vineyard was made with full malolactic fermentation and aged in 80% new oak. It opens with notes of iodine and crushed shell with notes of jasmine, spices and preserved lemon. The palate is powerful but weightless, concentrated but lively, with minerally notes and loads of floral perfume, finishing long and pure. 190 cases were made."
