Unable to get a bottle for assessment from the agent. A REPEAT of the 2015 (**/**+) was released on October 13, 2018 at $19.95. Here is my previous note: Extremely deep intense purple colour. Fairly cedary, ripe plum-black cherry nose. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, ripe, plum-cassis-blueberry flavours with a lingering, cedary finish. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot has 14% alcohol and 4g/L residual sugar with a new lot number L-8162 on the back label. CSPC 712463
