Super-ripe dark cherry, chocolate, plum, new leather, sweet French oak, licorice, smoke and new leather infuse the 2015 Baron de Brane. Dark, supple and inviting, with no hard edges, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. There is lovely depth and succulence here. Even so, I would prefer to drink the 2015 over the next few years.

A perfumy black tea note weaves around here, while the core of gently mulled cherry and red currant fruit unwinds slowly, letting additional alder and warm stone accents emerge. Shows a light iron echo on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2029. 10,833 cases made.
