The 2022 Hosanna was picked from 5-19 September. This is backward, almost surly on the nose. Blackberry, wild mint and light blood orange aromas reluctantly manifest on the nose; iodine touches emerge later. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that frame the black fruit laced with tobacco and thyme. There is something almost stentorian about this Hosanna, and as such, it will demand a decade in bottle. A serious Pomerol that is a bit saturnine at the moment. I am prudent with my score because I would like a little more finesse.
Anticipated maturity: 2029-2050
