Nose of; baked fruits, burnt ambers, black licorice anise, black currants and dry dark mixed florals. Nice to compare three vintages to see their evolution. Fruits are definitely leaner in a good way than the 13. They have not even come close to any sort of prune or fig stag, but show nice age. Fruits are; blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, black plum, plum, green bean/snow pea, black cherry licorice, spices mellow nicely, tannins are smoother rounder and the acidity is very good. These are dark concentrated wines. This one is not a baby but just getting out of the infant stage. Photo is artwork of their brochure and one of their harvesters. 😜

Stunning smoky baked Forest fruits with earthy notes. Very nice balance and complexity.
