Dense red fruit, rich and oak still has not integrated. Needs another 20+ years

Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits, smoky spice and earthy notes. A blend of 80% Merlot & 20% Cab Franc, 100% new oak, on the palate flavors of fruit & spice, Blackberry, Plum & Black Cherry, with notes of espresso, vanilla & smoky cedar, lively acidity with great mouthfeel. Fine tannins, still grippy, long finish ending with toasty cedar, tobacco and earthy spice, needs some time to develop. Wait a couple of years on the ‘16.

Wow! Offering up notes of melted caramel, sweet mocha, blackberry and black cherry fruit, with hints of loamy soil and unsmoked cigar tobacco as well as a touch of white chocolate and some subtle toasty oak. Round, opulent and unctuously textured, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, fabulous purity, and no hard edges, this sumptuous, fleshy, lavishly rich.

Deep and dark flavors — currant, jammy blueberry, long pruney finish. Brooding and chewy in the best way on day two. Kinda boozy though. Lots of life ahead for the other bottle I’ve got on hand.

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, pleasant spice and earthy notes. Clos L'Eglise has a wine-producing tradition spread over several centuries. A blend of 80% Merlot & 20% Cab Franc, 100% new oak, on the palate flavors of ripe Cherry & Strawberry, with notes of vanilla, licorice, cacao & cedar, lively acidity with great mouthfeel. Fine tannins, still have some power that open nicely, long finish ending with toasty cedar, tobacco and earthy spice, just starting to drink well, should continue to age nicely! Wow!
