Complex aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, licorice and pungent flowers are enlivened by a spicy topnote. Shows excellent clarity and powerful thrust to the juicy, nicely concentrated blackberry and violet pastille flavors, and a peppery nuance adds spicy back-end cut. Closes sappy, energetic and very long, with fine-grained tannins sneaking in late. -Josh Raynolds

It shows the house style with its pure, concentrated, focused character. Blackcurrants, cassis, toasted spice and graphite all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully layered and pure 2015 that needs 2-3 years of bottle age, and will keep for a decade or more.

This wine is perhaps the most charming of the three, revealing attractive notes of dried herbs and spices on the nose, along with red berries and black cherries. It's medium-bodied and savory, marked by flavors of black olives and espresso, then it lightens again on the richly textured finish. Drink it over the next decade or so. -Joe Czerwinski
