This winery as been on a roll, certainly over the last twenty years, but especially, the last 10. This is the best 2015 I have tasted so far. Purple in color. The nose has great cassis, some char, tobacco and cedar. On the palate, this has soft black cherries while still having firm tannins. Cassis, earth and tobacco. Some spice. It is big and bold, yet accessible in the glass. Improved all night long. Certainly a few points of upside if cellared for a decade or two. $130 is expensive but for this quality, probably fair.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
