light earthy flavor; very long appley/apple pie/earthy/very spicy quite tart/lean slight earthy finish; on the
leaner/austere side for HoG but not thin/eviscerted; lovely flavor & aromatics but should put on weight w/ age.

Seems to be really evolving nicely and the acidity, though still there, is not as intrusive as the wine puts on weight. Probably still needs several yrs and should go out 10.

Funny, we were choosing between the ‘14 Heart of Gold and that Shell and Bone last night!
cheers, Patchen

'13 and '14 have been my two favorite vintages, though I suspect '17 may usurp that position, in time.
