ALH put the finishing touches to its new profile with the 2017 vintage, in which a focus on terroir, ripeness and judicious use of oak resulted in reductive-style, austere reds with palates dominated by freshness and a linear feel. Bright purple in the glass, with austere aromas reminiscent of herbs and cherry that fade on the chalky palate. Progresses in a linear fashion in the mouth, presenting a vertical complexion that leaves behind juice and a lengthy, herbal finish. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, October 2020)

Chalk and tannin. This one is DRY. It did open up after about an hour in the glass.
