Winemaker Notes: The 2019 vintage for HGIII is a knockout – an unequivocal example of how this expansive, rich, and deeply textured wine over-delivers. Tony’s ingenious blend, the core trio of varieties all offer distinction and harmony to the final blend: Merlot leads with finesse and approachability, Cabernet Sauvignon elevates with structure and polish, and Petite Syrah grounds the blend with gravitas and bass. With red and black currant forming the aromatic core, dried herb and fennel are their verdant, savory counterpart. A ripe juicy frame of dark sour and red cherry mingles with inky black cassis laced with fine streaks of dark Belgian chocolate. Undeniably approachable now, with the structure, density, and complexity for great age-ability.
Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points: “The larger production 2019 HG3 has lots of ripe blue and black fruits as well as hints of mint and eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, soft, forward, and undeniably delicious, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming decade.”
