"(17 percent new French oak; 15.5 percent alcohol) Lurid violet. A powerfully scented, complex bouquet evokes boysenberry, cherry preserves, licorice, five-spice powder and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with sweet black and blue fruit, spicecake and violet flavors that show a surprisingly light touch for their heft. Supple, slow-building tannins gently frame the broad, smoky finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-dominated persistence."

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 The Struie has a very youthful crushed black berry and black currant nose with licorice, dark chocolate and tar suggestions. Full-bodied with a taut, muscular palate and solid backbone of chewy tannins, this is a sturdy, rugged style, which should mellow a bit with a few years in cellar."
