14 months in oak - 79% new French, 21% neutral
An elegant, medium-bodied wine with aromas and flavors of fresh blackberries, dark chocolate, dried herbs, and pine nuts. The mid-palate brings a savory meatiness, with a long, cocoa finish.

Across the board, the fruit from our 2015 vintage tended to be a bit light in color, and a bit lower in alcohol than we typically see in the region. Luckily, this allows some of the more delicate floral and fruit aromas to really shine through. It may pack the alcoholic punch of some other vintages, but it more than makes up for it in finesse.

Outstanding in every way.
