(at Jardinière – SF) Really enjoyed this bottle. The nose was simply captivating: fruit and earth with admirable power. The palate was tight initially but opened well with 60 minutes of air. I think this will be rockin’ in a few years. Great balance. (92+)
Coravin'd a glass from a 375ml. Wow i thought BW was the weaker vineyard compared to HS, but not these bottles. Cranberry, cherry, some baking spice.. surprisingly balanced for such a young wine. quite tasty.. maybe it just hasn't shut down yet? i'm certainly gonna drink through the half bottles i have
