I've rated this before and my love of this wine and vintage remains. Super concentrated, big fruit, well integrated tannins (even at this young age) balanced with nice acidity, and a finish that goes on and on.

The bottle I had was a little comprised, but the density and fruit quality puts this in line with the greats of oakville.

Absolutely amazing...big fruit on entry, but incredibly balanced, super silky tannins and a long finish...very elegant. Ranks in my top 10 for 2015 (up there with Brand and VHR)...I love this wine.

Beautifully "restrained" (if that term applies to Napa blockbusters) and showing fantastic balance.
This reminds me of 2003 Araujo Eisele CS at age 5+.

Buy as much as you can afford and then put a few extra bottles on your CC.
This is going to be a legend in 20+ years.

A voluptuous, sumptuous, soft and wet beauty. Amazing how forward and in place things are for it! Thanks Eric!

In my estimation, this is a truly perfect wine. An hour or two of air in a decanter give this enough time to open up and blossom into a beautiful, voluptuous wine with amazing fruit and secondary characteristics. Just beautiful!
