The 2015 Doubleback 'Estate Reserve' Red Wine is a simply stunning effort from a very warm vintage in the Walla Walla Valley. Needing more than a two hour decant to fully open, this inky and brooding in colored wine begins with heady aromatics reminiscent of cigar ash, graphite, crème de cassis, black olive tapenade and Turkish coffee which continuously bring you back to the glass for more. There is a marvelous sense of place to this wine, as the purity of fruit shines through. Flavors of black tea, blackberry pie, mocha and sagebrush accents complete this marvelous wine. With moderate to heavy tannins, this wine will cellar marvelously over the next 20 plus years. Another feather in the cap to the uber-talented Josh McDaniels.
