Ratings & Tasting notes:
95 points Wine Spectator
Explosively aromatic and extraordinarily long, this well-balanced wine doesn’t show its muscle as much as does its structure to propel the gorgeous flavors. Cherries, berries, earth and mineral notes mingle enticingly, wrapped in a gentle buzz of tannins. A stylish wine that should age well. (9/2002)
92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Medium to deep brick in color, the 1997 Hill of Grace is a little closed on the nose with notes of leather and Indian spices giving way to hints of dried mulberries, burnt toast, charcoal and sauteed herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it has good acid balance and concentration and a medium level of chewy tannins through the long finish. Drink it now to 2020+. (LPB) (4/2013)
