2015 is a great vintage and I was excited to get a chance to try this one.  In Burgundy terms, this is certainly a value.  It was selling for under $40.  Ruby/purple in color.  Very bright.  On the nose, sour cherries and slight cranberries.  Very nice lush texture.  Medium tannins.  On the palate, a bit one dimensional at this point.  Plenty of sour cherry fruit.  It drinks more like a new world Pinot than I expected.  Perhaps those labels mean less and less these days.  It is very enjoyable right now, but I think to justify the money, it should be laid down for at least a decade.  Certainly, plenty of upside.
