CS H Vinous 2017 92+
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle is the most tannic and austere wine in this range. Massively structured and shut down today, the 2017 is far less showy in bottle than it was from barrel. Then again, we are talking about one of the very best sites in Stags Leap. Inky dark fruit, graphite, licorice, menthol and cedar are some of the many nuances that develop over time.
