Tasting Notes:

"Aromas of freshly ground pink peppercorn, wild raspberry and blueberry preserve, rose petal and asian spice with high tones of crushed wet stone and lavender. Deep and brooding with an intense core of floral scented currant and black cherry flavors charmed with lively acidity. Resonate tannins are nicely defined with a long, penetrating spice finish.

95 points "The second consecutive 95 point score from what is now Kenneth’s oldest source after four vintages. As of this writing there has been frenetic renewed interest shown in any existing Auteur wines on the market, most notably Hyland. 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." Best 2008-2014
