The 2015 Au Bon Climat 'Isabelle' is another sensational release from Jim Clendenen. Comprised of only the best spections each vintage, this stunning Pinot Noir offers classic old-world character, nuanced by gorgoeus aromas of fresh cherries, cassis, dried herbs, savory spices, florals and dried soil along with hints of forest floor and toasted oak all taking shape. On the palate this possesses wonderful balance and finesse, with beautiful flavors of red fruit and earth that presist through the finish. The 2015 is simply magnificant today and should go on to age incredibly well for years to come. This remains one of the finest valued Pinot Noir wines out there.
