2015 La Ronde

2015 La Ronde

The first thing I smelled when I raised this glass to my nose was caramelized sugar, but then it was replaced by more traditional fruit aromas. I’m not sure why that struck me so intensely on that first sniff, but that’s part of the magic of wine: it combines with and reacts other factors in the environment to produce a unique experience for every taster and every situation. The toasting of oak used in winemaking produces caramelization, and those flavors do get into the wine at a low level so that the flavor was there is not a surprise, but that it jumped out like that was a delightful and irreproducible surprise. Beyond that candied first impression, I found the delightful aroma of black raspberries, pure, focused, and intense. This delightful fruity core is joined in the mouth by tantalizing hints of mint, sage, leather, and earth, and the whole thing is bound together with structurally sound tannins that will continue to hold this wine together for many years to come. Fantastic with a nice steak or grilled portabella mushroom. Enjoy! ~ Matt Albee, winemaker
