Nose has new leather, blackberry syrup, black cherry, chocolate, dried leaves and a touch of alcohol.

Palate has dried cherry, chalk, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and blackberry.

3 hours of decanting, more time is needed.

A very young wine, enjoyed from 375ml, in hopes that we'd see a little more advancement. A nice comparison to a 2009 version (750ml) we also enjoyed this evening. I'll take the nose of the '09 but the palate of the '15, tonight.

Drank this way too young. It could easily use 5-8 more years. Started to open up after about an hour of decanting. Good structure, black fruit, cedar.

2015 is an especially generous vintage for Meyney. The signature dark cherries and chocolate shavings take center stage, paving way for what is one of my favorite weeknight reds of the vintage. The tannins are a bit drying now and in need of some time, but in 4-5 years this is going to peak for a solid decade or more.
