Snow & Ice - 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Réserve Selection, Raymond
I loved the 2013 (and still do, have some bottles left) and the 2015 vintage follows suit, even though it doesn´t reach the heights of the 13.
The nose is upfront, juicy and rich with notes of violets, ripe black currants, graphite, expensive leather and bonfire smoke. Deep, inky and fine. Displays power and restraint.
The taste is taut yet silky and concentrated with notes of ripe blueberries, asphalt, cocoa, violets and dark rubber. Very, very long with a laid back warmth. Broader than the 2013 but will surely become even better with 6+ years in the cellar. 680 barrels produced.
93p (tasted 2019/03)
