Rich, textural layers define HG III. The 2018 greets with lifted aromatics of wild cherry, blueberry, cassis, and subtle hints of dried flowers and savory herbs. These aromas carry forward on the palate, the medley of saturated, pure fruit flavors providing dimension to the broad-shouldered, sumptuous texture. Dense and concentrated, yet balanced by lively acidity, a refined structure and well-integrated tannins, HG III delivers an eminently drinkable wine at cork-pull.
HG III beautifully intertwines Merlot, Petit Sirah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot contributes sleek textures and elegant bright red fruit components. Simultaneously, the Petite Sirah provides the anchoring deep dark blue and black fruits, while the Cabernet weaves these together with structural framing and elegant refinement.
