iCellars 2015 Arinna

As much as I was impressed with the 2014 of this wine the ’15 is even better – the formula seems familiar: 12 months French and American oak (French dominated), but the percentages are more in balance with where you would expect them to be from this vintage: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc – Franc still takes up the rear but this year it’s up a whopping 17%! This one is quite simply gorgeous from the aromas of cassis, mocha and cherry to the smoky-white pepper and grippy tannin structure at the back end, even the dark fruit mid-palate shows finesse. This is one to be proud of. Only 225 cases produced – and even at this price should go quickly. Drink: 2019-2029.  Price: $39.00 – Rating: **** ½+
