This wine is outstanding! I tasted a bit pop and pour and knew it was special. It started out bright fruit and floral. I left it alone for two hours and then drank through the evening. Outstanding. It is delicate with red and blue fruit, yet dense and complex. Floral, bright fruit, and chocolate? on the nose. I took it outside on a 90 degree humid, MN afternoon and the nose got even more intense. I will do this on purpose again.

Decanted for about 1.5 hours. Very dark wine. The nose explodes with blackberries and blueberries. The palate has fruit, tannin, cassis and just the right amount of acid. Lovely wine.

Delicious, dark. Well blended. One of my favorites of last night. Didn’t have time to take notes. $257

Spectacular fruit forward, smooth saying finish. Makes me wonder how good the 2014 is (that is what was on the menu we ordered)

Need to try this in a line up of other HS. The nose seems to be bigger and more aromatic on this one versus past vintages (from memory). As always super smooth, concentrated and exceedingly well made.

Creme de cassis, thick, ripe, and juicy black fruits, crushed berries. Some notes of barrel toast. A baby. Will be off the charts good in a decade or more.
