More plush black fruit, velvet and herbs than the almost harshly red-fruited '14. Delicious

I liked this a lot. Dense black and blue fruits, stewed and slightly candied in some ways, deep violet tones, some smoke and piney aromas, powdered sugar, crumbly rocks. Wanted more time to breath. For how big (15%abv) this really carries some finesse to it. I found the tannins to be tame and layered giving texture and definition to all the fruit.

after 2 hour decant. Nose is open with dark candied fruits, blackberries dark cherries and some blueberries. Allot of flower on the nose as well mostly violets. In the mouth a nice acidic base that counteracts the relatively high alcoholic level. Tannins are medium high. The taste is again very fruit based turning a light sour on the medium long finish. Still young and is likely to improve. Wait another 2-3 years if u only have 1 bottle.

Blue/black fruit, dried flowers, cedar, vanilla(?), with a hint of something green. Certainly opened up on day 2. Great balance and structure. Great wine on a cold and snowy night.

Blackberry, cured meat and of course bay leaves. Lovely acidity and tanic structure that will integrate nicely within the next five years.
