*Barrel Sample* This wine is spicy, packed with tannins that are well integrated with the black fruits. It is rich, it is round and it will develop quickly.
*Barrel Tasting* Offers very nice purity from the get-go, with a core of cassis and cherry flavors that glide along, carried by a very fine chalky thread. This is lovely, with length and cut. (Web Only—2016)
A juicy and savory wine with velvety tannins and a fresh and clean finish.
The 2015 Pibran is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, matured in 50% new oak for the next 18 months. It was picked between 21 September and 8 October. It has a precise, tightly wound bouquet at first, graphite-tinged black fruit gently unfurling with a suggestion of iodine in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, perhaps a little coarseness that will be abided by time, moderate depth leading to a classic, foursquare, tobacco-tinged finish. This is a slightly conservative Pibran, but stylish and sure to give 10-15 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
Well-expressed, even Cabernet-Merlot blend showing crunchy black fruits. Clear and structured; will age well. (SS)
The 2015 Pibran is soft, succulent and quite pretty. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of dark red stone fruits in an attractive, supple wine that will drink well pretty much upon release. This is a lovely, fruit-driven Pauillac with considerable near term appeal. (AG)
