The 2015 Vine Hill Ranch is totally stunning, and one of the most impressive young wines of the vintage. It begins with striking aromatics of ripe blackberries and dark currants are woven together with spices, graphite, tobacco, sage and spring florals that all come together and soar from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, concentrated and beautifully textured, with remarkable overall structure and balance. Delicious flavors of ripe dark fruits, spices and mocha continue expand from its core and continue to envelop the palate through the long, supple finish. The 2015 VHR is a complete sucess in this vintage, and while already delicious, it should also continue to age gracefully for many years to come.
