Aromas of bright cherries, sandalwood, bramble berries and cassis. There is also an array of spices including rosemary, thyme and cracked black pepper. Hedonistic yet incredibly structured. This Merlot dominant wine is concentrated and long in the finish. and is already showing well and will continue to develop for 7-10 years.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate- (91-94 points) Barrel Sample
" A new wine made from two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Counterpart offers beautiful notes of plums, graphite, black cherries and dark chocolate. Pure, surprisingly structured and full-bodied, it’s a big, rich 2015 that stays fresh and lively on the palate and is going to impress with short-term cellaring." Jeb Dunnuck
