Reviews & Scores
(85% new oak): Medium ruby-red. Very savory, soil-driven aromas of tobacco, minerals, beef jerky and mincemeat pie; perhaps less about primary fruit than any other recent vintage of this wine. Wonderfully silky and plush, with compelling sweetness and suavity to its flavors of raspberry, dried fit, tobacco, minerals and truffle. Distinctly glossy, mouthfilling wine with suave, totally integrated tannins and terrific saline persistence. Made from a small crop of grapes, this sexy beast is deceptively drinkable today but may yet shut down in bottle.
A solid wine with a full core of fruit and round, chewy tannins. Full body with chocolate, berry, plum and ripe-fruit character. Better in 2016.
(from 30-year-old vines planted to the See clone): Good bright ruby. Spicy aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, minerals, menthol and bitter chocolate. A juicy, penetrating bomb of black and blue fruits on the palate but tightly wound and primary today. This impressive wine's tannic spine is going to require patience.
