2020 vintage. Wow. Medium ruby color. Red fruit aroma. Flavors of raspberry and strawberry jam, herbal note (lovage?), some bell pepper with moderate acid, little tannin depending on the temperature. Give it a moment, it will open up after 10 minutes in your glass. — 2 months ago
Very fruit or berry forward and a delight to drink on its own or with food. — 3 months ago
Fresh and crisp- great depth in the moth and on the nose; quite good - she is making great wine here at the domaine — 5 months ago
Light, delicate and a hint of spice on the nose. Flavors of raspberry and cola with a bit of acid. This was accessible and balanced. — a month ago
Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate and nicely balanced.
Showing black fruits with spices, light wood, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, red candy, black pepper, herbs and light graphite.
This 11 year old is peaking now. Nice and engaging. Extracted and rich, yet elegant. Tangy and interesting.
Good right out of the bottle, and much better after 90 minutes of air time.
Showing nice complexity at this point with a nice mouthfeel.
A very interesting take on a Petite Sirah from Colorado. Showing more red fruits than I expected.
I had it before and I liked it even better now.

Damn. Notes from 24 hrs open. Best young Walter Hundsruck I've ever had? Certainly in the running. On the nose: spicebox, cranberry, pomegranate molasses, wild strawberry...intoxicating perfume. On the palate: lovely acidity and density: soft spice, pomegranate, earth, strawberry leaf. Soft chalky tannin and a touch of warmth on the finish. This is spectacular. — 5 months ago
A little tight, needs more time — 2 months ago
Def could use some more aging but already clearly a winner. — 2 months ago
A stunning showing and 16 might be the best vintage ever at Walter. Nose is late season cherries, some framing oak, spice, tobacco, stunning minerality and just endless depth. So floral and complex. I could smell this all day. Smells like elite NSG right now. Palate is just amazing. Ridiculous dark cherry fruit that is so crunchy, fresh and concentrated. Wow this is so precise and succulent. Insane balance and hidden power. What depth and length. Amazing stuff in that it’s so silky and juicy and sweet and the oak is already so well integrated on the palate. This has sexy, velvety tannins and an amazingly long finish. 9.5 now but this will go higher. — 3 months ago
