Winemaker Alison Doran’s tasting notes: The 2015 vintage offers pretty aromas of black cherry and mocha followed by darker notes of chocolate and cassis. The palate has a soft entry with more mocha and black cherry with lovely dark berry fruit on the warm friendly finish. The center has some solid ripe tannin for savory structure – small crops and roller coaster temperatures give this wine intensity and attitude that it will grow into over the next several years.
