Blended of 50% Syrah, 34% Grenache and 16% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Terry Hoage Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a lovely red fruit-dominant nose of red currants and cherries with hints of blackberries, mulberries, charcuterie and spice box, plus a touch of black olives. Full-bodied, firm and fine in the mouth, it has lovely vibrant red and black fruits with plenty of pepper, spice flavors and a good long finish. Drink through 2032. (LPB)
Dark purple. A powerfully scented, complex bouquet displays mineral-accented boysenberry, cherry pie, licorice, five-spice powder and smoky mineral aromas that expand with air. Stains the palate with sweet, deeply concentrated red and blue fruit, spicecake and candied violet flavors that show a surprisingly graceful touch. Velvety, slow-building tannins gently shape a broad, smoky finish, which hangs on with superb, floral-driven tenacity. Drink through 2032. (JR)
The 2015 Terry Hoage Vineyard, which had just been bottled at the time of this tasting, is a blend of 50% Syrah, 34% Grenache, and 16% Mourvèdre. It sports a medium-ruby color as well as a classic Hoage vineyard perfume of flowers, cranberries, violets and assorted red and black fruits. This cuvée always has a tropical-slant to its fruit and is medium to full-bodied in 2015, with sweet, supple tannin, plenty of glycerol, no hard edges and a supple, forward yet balanced style. Drink it over the coming decade. It’s not going to make you forget the 2014, but is still a beautiful, singular wine.
Plump and jammy, with soft and discreetly complex raspberry, toasty vanilla and smoky herb flavors that glide on a long finish. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. (TF, Web only-2019)
