The seventh vintage of our Stone Soup, 2015, is a child of the forth drought year in a row. It is very dark, intensely fragrant wine. Medium plus bodied, deeply flavored and exceptionally concentrated (even by Stone Soup standards…), with a powerful tannic structure and excellent natural acidity. This vintage is less shy about displaying its ripe fruit than any of the older vintages were at the same stage. The ripeness helps cushion the tannic bones and makes the wine a lot more attractive right off the bat than ever before.
Denser, and yet more friendly than the 2014 was at the same stage, this wine has decades of life ahead of it, while offering great pleasure for current consumption.
