De Toren 2015 The Black Lion Shiraz (Coastal Region)

Cellar Selection

This wine is currently a big, bold beast, with serious concentration and tremendous depth that suggests this wine's considerable future. Deep aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, plum and raspberry all abound on the nose and mouth, with a equally intense overlay of whole baking spice, campfire, black tea and pepper. The mouthfeel is bold yet balanced, with a texture like crushed velvet and a long, evolving finish that transitions masterfully from dark fruit flesh to charred cherry and baked plum, and then final notes of espresso bean, black forest cake and tilled earth. Expect even more complexity and layers of flavor to develop with age. Built for long-term cellaring, drink 2023–2033. Lauren Buzzeo
