Vintages 2015

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : 94

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.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : 92+

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.

 

WINE SPECTATOR

Score : 95 

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. Best from 2023 through 2035. 2,916 cases made, 895 cases imported. — JM
