The 2016 Hosanna offers attractive, minerally black fruit on the nose, laced with rose petal and woodland aromas. It shows admirable focus and seems to gain vigor with aeration. The palate is well balanced with silky-smooth tannin and a fine bead of acidity. A classy Hosanna, sleek and seductive, culminating in an utterly harmonious finish. It needs a few years to subsume the new oak, but this is a very promising showing. Burgundy in Pomerol, perchance?
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2048
