  • Sadly some tca marred what is quite a brilliant wine. Dense, blueberry heart. Some sage, tobacco and cedar. Good depth and fresh finish.

  • Drunk in a vertical with the '90 and '92. Relatively muted nose. This was more black fruited than the others, blackberries mostly. Yet to show much development, plenty of years in the tank and may well show better down the track. Excellent wine but the '90 was a hard act to follow.

  • Always questions about how this had been stored and wine was very flat. Have had other HOG 91's recently that were great but this bottle and the cork not indicative of the general experience

  • Held up well. Still with good fruit complexity and length in the palate.

  • Just. Wow. Truly unique and special. Accurately or otherwise, I view HoG as nearly the antithesis of Grange (not a shot at Grange, simply remarkable how starkly different they've been in my very limited experience with each).

    PnP from AD's cellar (and a beyond gracious pull, thank you again!). Sadly, I don't believe this bottle had been perfectly stored for all these years. Luckily, it wasn't much worse for wear!

    Very purple hue, with some copper coloring at the rim. The dark fruit nose was relatively muted, but what leapt from the glass was a true burst of blueberry. Velvet soft palate - no tannin remaining. Lovely, long elegant finish. And fresh, wild Maine blueberries! Not typically what one desires in your $500 wine, but this was not even close to cloying nor syrupy.

    Amazing wine over which to linger for hours. I can't see much upside in waiting on your 1991 HoG's so, drink up!
