    November 3, 2018 - Soft, pretty nose of plum, blueberry, green herb, and mushroom. Elegant and resolved palate, with flavors of blue and red fruit, silky and pliant. The 1992 Hillside Select is all finesse with none of that vintage's flash. This doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon but I doubt it'll get better.

    March 13, 2018 - Medium ruby with violet edges. Sweet boysenberry with a hint of mulberry on the nose. Delicious body, mildly sweet, that reflects the nose along with strong strawberry notes at the end palate and into the excellent finish. Solid minerality. solid acids; drinks shockingly young.

    April 12, 2017 - Just flat out shot. Over the hill. In contrast to the '92 Dominus (93 points), which was still in fine form, with years of good drinking still ahead. Disappointing to open bottles well stored for over 20 years and find them undrinkable.
