90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 HG III is a blend of 60% Merlot, 17% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon plus some mixed field blends. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it has a pretty perfume of baked black cherries, plum pudding and spice cake with wafts of wilted roses and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with evocative juicy black and blue fruits, framed by plush tannins, finishing spicy.

As to the reds, the 2017 HG III showed well. A Merlot-dominated blend, it has lots of spice, incense, and dried herb notes as well as a core of chocolaty fruit. Medium to full-bodied, forward, balanced, and undeniably delicious...
