The 2015 La Serre is bold, powerful and juicy, all qualities that are best enjoyed on the young side. Some rough edges remain, but the 2015 has filled out nicely. What comes through most is a plump, juicy, midweight wine to drink now and over the next few years. La Serre is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2025

“A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 La Serre sports a medium bright garnet-purple color and is scented of warm plums, crushed blackberries and fragrant earth with wafts of black olives and mossy tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, finely crafted, refreshing and with lovely purity, it has a well-played frame of grainy tannins and a mineral note to the finish.”
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2033
