Plenty of blackcurrant, blackberry and dark chocolate character with oyster shell and walnut undertones. Full body, extremely tight and structured with blueberry and light vanilla and coffee highlights. A gorgeous Oreno. Give this wine two or three years to come together.
A swath of tannins coats the finish. Black cherry, black currant and mineral flavors hold court. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2019 through 2032.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Oreno is Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This nicely balanced effort shows rich color saturation and thick lines. The robust-blended red exhibits black fruit flavors followed by spice, tobacco and crushed granite or limestone. The bouquet is layered and deep. In terms of mouthfeel, the wine offers lots of density and power. It is firm and powerful and the tannins will require another few years of cellar aging before they soften. Oreno likes a warm vintage and it gets that in 2015.
The wine is ruby red with violet reflections and spicy aromas of blackberry. On the palate, ripe berries lead to spices andsweet oak on a full body with firm tannic structure.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot
