Dark color. Robust aroma. Jams of cherries and strawberries. Flavors a rich and full. Definite sweeter, fruit bomber style. Plums/prunes. A bit much, but for the old vine Sin style it’s fine.

Smells like dry wood, Smokey, deep dark purple from center to the rim. The legs on the glass stretch forever. Should have had this without tasting a Bordeaux for a true test. Comes across as tart, Berry’s and jam.

I’m revisiting this after about a. Year and it does not disappoint. This is the last of my 2015’s. Flavors of Dr. Pepper and dried cherries. It is very fruit forward if that is your thing. It is a very a dark purple on the poor. It went perfectly with the prime New York strip I paired it with. If you see any 2015’s, grab them. Looking forward to checking out the 2016 vintage.

Nice nose, fruity and woodsy. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Velvety. Cherry, oak, and pepper. Berries and mild bourbon. Very drinkable.
