Community Tasting Notes (18) Avg Score: 90.3 points

  • A very aromatic wine with lots of dark fruit and oak. On the tongue there are various berry flavors—cassis, blueberry on the sweetish side and cranberry (?) on the tartish side. Leathery notes as the wine passes mid-palate—might also be more of a dark chocolate thing. A nice full-bodied wine whose tannins appear to be completely resolved.

  • Drank over 2 days, with vacu-vin overnight. DAY 1: no decanting. eucalyptus and mint right out of the bottle - almost overwhelming. This settled down over a few hours to reveal black fruits with some sweet oak, herbal undertones, and a decent finish. DAY 2: much better! Integrated fruit, balanced tannins and acidity, good finish, with the same eucalyptus. This is drinking well now, and likely won't improve. Overall, this is a good wine that's a great example of an old school style updated with new world California fruit - not Bad, if you like that sort of stuff.

  • May be just slightly beyond its peak. Pleasant, but muted nose of plum, cassis and cedar. The mud palate is a bit off - missing the vibrant fruit I associate with WHL. Just slightly out of balance favoring tannins plus acidity over fruit. The finish is not memorable.

  • This wine has really softened nicely without losing the complexity and flavors that we enjoyed in previous bottles. Nice mouthfeel and finish. A very enjoyable and easy drinking wine.

  • Nice nose, but not overly aromatic. Very pleasant layers of cocoa, figs, coffee, mint and cherries. The tannins and acidity are balanced but well structured. Very nice, long lasting finish.
