Two things: 1) You're responding as if I had panned herbal qualities period, rather than simply objecting to the extreme amount of it in the LB I opened the other night which bear no resemblance to the bottles that have been transporting Jim Dietz of late. Really, unlike some, I actually like some herbaceousness in wines. For gosh sakes I adore pure Cab Franc. But I'm against it when it's overwelming and out of balance, which was the case with this wine (and the young Glorias you mention). 2) I'm surprised to see you talking about loving the herbal qualities though, I've read your TN's on so many 97's and I just don't remember you praising that feature, or even calling attention to it.

Which 97's are you still sitting on? I keep thinking you're going to run out. I don't have many: GPL, Cos and Montrose are all I think.
