NVWE Notes: A 2015 Cab all the way, this wine offers scents of red currant, dark cherry, purple plum jelly, dark boysenberry, and vanilla, with hints of peppercorn and dried orange peel. It is flavorful, rich in body and shows polished grip in the mouth, where sour dark cherry, plum jam, blackberry, red and black currant, cedar, vanilla, black tea and hazelnut husk notes make a gutsy impression. The finish lingers well, adding notes of coffee bean and tobacco to the wine's dominantly red fruits. The ending balance suggests that a bit more finesse is on the way in eighteen months or so.
NVWE Notes: This fine and age-worthy Merlot offers bright aromas of red currant, Amarena cherry, cranberry, black raspberry and rose, with more subtle counterpoints of vanilla, baking spices, cedar and licorice root. It shows typical “2015 grip” on the palate, where flavors of red currant, pomegranate and sour red cherry create a slightly piquant foil to notes of dark tobacco, star anise, cocoa nibs, mace, clove and sandalwood. The finish is long and shows both fine structure and food-friendliness. With airing, notes of blueberry and black cherry bring an extra note of richness. Expect two years or more of steady improvement. Blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.
NVWE Notes: Bright, focused and forthcoming, this delicious wine offers scents of lemon sorbet, honeydew melon, lemon grass, cucumber, brioche, orange blossom, honeysuckle, lavender and white pepper, along with a suggestion of oyster shell. Is is fresh yet engagingly soft-edged on the palate, with flavors of preserved lemon, lime curd, honeydew melon, cucumber, jasmine, honeysuckle, coriander seed, dried orange and white pepper. The finish is harmonious, refreshing and long.
NVWE Notes: 2016 marks a stylistic change for this bottling, with a shift toward greater elegance. The aromas are a genteel perfume of white peach, Asian pear, baked apple, orange blossom, lime curd, brioche and vanilla wafer. It is supple and quietly rich in the mouth, where flavors of green melon, Asian pear, baked apple, lemon meringue, vanilla, baking spices, yellow rose and white pepper find harmony. The finish lingers, with just a hint of honey at the end.
