The 2015 Clos St. Martin displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is scented of plum preserves, blackberry pie, wild blueberries and incense with touches of unsmoked cigars and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with vibrant, well-delineated black fruit layers with alluring red fruit accents and a firm frame of velvety tannins, finishing long and lively.
A stylish, elegant version, with subtly mulled raspberry and black cherry fruit infused with black tea and dried anise flavors. The polished structure lets the fruit play out while light petrichor and incense notes echo through the finish. Pretty wine.
Varietal: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc
