Aromas of bark, blackberries, currants and basil leaf, not to mention lavender and sage. Full body, integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and beautiful. Drink in 2022.

All of the elements meld together in a rich, sumptuous wine endowed with serious depth and intensity. Time in the glass seems to bring out a good bit of aromatic nuance. The 2015 shut down quickly both times I tasted it, which is probably a good sign for the future. For now, readers will have to be patient. Tasted two times.

Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new oak, it has an incredible floral streak as well as perfumed notes of spring flowers, black raspberries, charcoal, and a salty minerality that shows more on the palate. With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, background chocolaty oak, and a terrific elegance, this beautiful 2015 is already impossible to resist yet I suspect will last for two decades or more. It’s impressive.

Crushed plum, cassis and melted red licorice notes are seamlessly intertwined here, with bright chalky minerality and a lovely floral lift throughout. Richly layered and youthfully compact but with excellent cut and drive through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2035. — J.M.
