Wine Advocate | Rating: 94Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Rothwell Hyde Proprietary Red has a very classic nose of cassis, black plums and black cherries with hints of unsmoked cigars, pencil shavings, camphor and underbrush with a waft of bay leaves. The full-bodied palate is lively, velvety, generous and packed with fruit, finishing long and spicy.Drink Dates: 2020 - 2034Author: Lisa Perrotti-BrownIssue: Mid-October 2018 New Releases
