Tasting Note :
James Suckling JS 94
Love the blackberry and dark-chocolate aromas with hints of sandalwood and almonds. Full-bodied, layered and very intense and powerful. So polished and long. Shows gorgeous length. Drink in 2022.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate RP 91+
Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Dalem spent 18 months in part new and part one-year-old oak barrels. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with notions of chocolate-covered cherries, crushed blackberries and plum preserves with a cedar and Marmite toast undercurrent plus a touch of beef drippings. Full-bodied and packed to the gills with youthful, crunchy black fruits.
