Intense and brooding aromatics of dark chocolate, mint, blackberry and dried mushrooms. Dense and sweet black fruit on the attack and a classy velvet feel. Seamless texture with enticing notes of clove and fig. Savory and herbal notes from cabernet franc lift the blend. Black fruit is buffered by a wall of muscular, yet fine grained structure. A merlot-based wine of unabashed power, yet undeniable finesse.

All the 2015s were bottled just 5 weeks ago. Looking first at the 2015 Fenix, it's probably the best vintage of this cuvee to date and is made from 47% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Currants, violets, plums, earth and licorice notes all give way to a ripe, sexy, incredibly polished Merlot that has building tannin. It's tour de force that needs 3-5 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades.

The 2015 Fenix is super-expressive. Dark cherry, chocolate, menthol, licorice and spice notes all run through this racy, Ballard Canyon red. In 2015, the Fenix packs a serious punch. I would give it a few years to soft, despite the considerable allure it holds today. Drinking Window: 2020-2030.

Blended of 47% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Fenix sports a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of crushed red and black plums, blackberries and black cherries with hints of baking spices, underbrush and Mediterranean herbs. The taut, generous full-bodied palate offers beautiful red and black fruit layers, framed by firm, velvety tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long. Approachable now, give it another year in bottle to really shine and drink it over the next 15 years+. Drink Date: 2019-2034.
