Ripe and polished, driven by mouthwatering raspberry, blueberry and blackberry sauce flavors racing through, inlaid with a graphite spine and backed by mouthwatering apple wood and anise notes on the finish. Solidly built and vibrant from start to finish. (JM)
The 2015 Hermitage is a rocking wine that does everything right. Boasting a saturated purple color, a great nose of blackberries, ground herbs, tapenade, and liquid violets, full body, and a layered, powerful style, it’s going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and will drink beautifully over the following 10-15 years.
This is built for the long haul, with 36 months in oak barrels, half of them new, contributing plenty of oak spice, sweetness and polish. Its complexity comes up as the wood notes vanish into a warm, ripe mouthful of plummy flavor. Deep and dense, the wine takes on notes of roses and lilies, caramel and sun-warmed stones, details that feel robust and well-formed. Hide this away for at least eight years before opening.
The impressive 2015 Hermitage looks to have closed down already. Cedary notes dominate the aromas, while concentrated cherries appear on the richly textured, chewy palate. This powerful, tannic wine needs at least another 5 years in the cellar, but it should come out the other side of this funk in fine shape. (JC)
