Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 134

Here is the wine that started us down the road to discovering Auteur and it is bittersweet to say it is last call on these wines, as the winery will be discontinuing the Hyland in 2007. The second consecutive 95 point score from what is now Kenneth's oldest source after four vintages. The winery's total production of Hyland in 2006 is 291 cases.

Shows a dense nose of dusty blackberry, cassis and cinnamon-sprinkled honeycomb. The palate is tightly focused with a very smooth core and acidity that comes on like a silken breeze. Finishes with pure black licorice, cherry and straight-razor thin nectarine with a hint of coffee bean.

8 hour slow-O and this was screaming good...fruit more forward than last bottle but the structure is stout. This wine is dark and cool with no sign of oak or alcohol. Will hold a long time I suspect.

Good nose and interesting flavors. Sharp acidity helped it pair well with (northern) Italian food.
