Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 is simply a chocolate box of layered delights, revealing crème de cassis and black cherry notes plus underlying roasted nuts, espresso, licorice, pepper, menthol hints and a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, the firm, grainy structure well-supports the densely packed fruit and savory layers, finishing with epic persistence and on a spicy note. This is a keeper that should cellar well over 20+ years!
Ornellaia 2017 masterfully interprets what was a particularly warm and sunny year. The intense and dark colour heralds a wine of beautiful concentration; the nose, rich and complex, releases scents of ripe red fruits, accompanied by notes of sweet tobacco and vanilla. The taste reveals an Ornellaia of great balance, a combination of firmness and pleasant freshness.
The 2017 No 6 checks in as 92% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, and 3% Viognier that saw the same 40% stems and will see 22 months in 60% new French oak. It too is inky colored and has a gorgeous bouquet of blackcurrants, cassis, scorched earth, violets, and ground pepper. Rich, powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated, it's more elegant and straight than the 2016, with a seamless texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. The 2017 has a touch more Larner Vineyard, which gives more acidity, and you see that in this barrel sample. It's another thrilling wine you need to pick up if at all possible!
Blueberries, black raspberries, violets, spring flowers, and ground pepper notes emerge from the 2017 Fulldraw Vineyard, which is beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, and just a stunning GSM blend. A blend of 66% Grenache, 17% Syrah, and 17% Mourvèdre, fermented with one-third stems, and aged in neutral oak, it's going to drink beautifully for upwards of a decade.
