My annual tasting of the Hillside Select allocation and I’ll leave the other bottles alone for 5-10 years... maybe. 😜 The 2017 is great! Beautiful wine. All things Hillside Select; dense, opulent, balanced, and well made. This has been my least favorite in the past 6 years including 2011. That’s like me saying the Testarossa is least favorite Ferrari. This was described as maybe the best wine of the vintage and I could believe that. Looking forward to the tasting in 5 years.
