2015 vintage. Let me start by correcting the back label, talking about "wild berries shadowed by subtle toasty oak"... In my humble opinion it should read "overshadowed by toasty oak that is by no means subtle". Don't get me wrong, it's not the amount of oak, it's the toasting that erases all Pinot Noir character from this wine. If you are a toasted oak fan you will love this smooth, easy-drinking wine though. At least it's not drying.
