Full-bodied, rich, ripe and densely packed, the opulent fruit is superbly framed by velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with lingering spice layers. 758 cases were made.

Full-bodied with lots of fruit but it's very tangy and nicely blended in the vibrant acidity and structured yet soft tannins. Citrusy on the finish. Drink in 2020.

Creamy scents of black raspberry, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, graphite and crushed rock. A bit less refined and delineated in the middle palate than the '14, with its flavors of black and red cherry and cocoa powder showing serious plushness and weight but also very good energy. These tannins may not be quite as fine as those of the '14 but the finish is gripping and very long, hinting at a youthfully medicinal quality. This has all the elements of the site but will take a while to express itself fully. According to Hobbs, 2015 was a distinctly warm, dry, early year "approaching the peak of the drought." (14.9% alcohol; 3.69 pH; 5.8 g/l acidity; from what Hobbs described as "a decent crop"--3.1 tons per acre--in the context of the vintage) -- Stephen Tanzer
