The 2015 Fonroque is just loaded with gorgeous red fruits; strawberries, framboise, flowers, and incense notes all soar from the glass of this beauty, and it has first-rate depth and complexity on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and silky on the palate, with beautiful purity and finesse, it's not a blockbuster, but shines for its elegance and length. Drink this gorgeous wine anytime over the coming 15-20 years. This cuvee is 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc brought up in 30% new French oak.

This has bright fruit aromas with cherry, raspberry and blueberry character, as well as a mineral and spicy undertone. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Extremely long and flavorful. Needs two or three years to soften.
