Very dark (opaque) ruby in color, the 2015 Bosché has aromas of dark cherry, brambly blackberry and cassis, with immense depth and complexity. The sweet oak spice is prominent with spice nuances of cinnamon, clove, aromatic cedar, cigar box and dark coco powder. The flavor is big, voluptuous, and elegant, with rich great depth of dark cherry and Santa Rosa plum. With balanced acidity, good body and texture, the tannins are substantial but integrated, providing a very long fruitful finish.

Vineyard Notes

100% Bosché Vineyard, a small 22 acre vineyard located west of Hwy. 29, on the famed Rutherford Bench, the Bosché Vineyard has very deep gravelly soils. A seasonal creek crosses the vineyard which indicates the water table to be high in the spring, providing water and nutrients for new shoot growth. As veraison approaches the water table drops, stressing the wines and intensifying the dark velvety fruit flavors. This is a natural area to grow Bordeaux varietals with dry farming or minimal drip irrigation.


Production Notes

The winter was one of the driest on record, although we did receive 75% of normal precipitation. The relatively dry, warm winter promoted early bud break and a cool spring supported a long flowering period. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was very light, with small clusters, small concentrated berries, and the fruit ripened in most cases, a good two weeks early. A moderate harvest gave way to a warm spell that completed the ripening on an early note. Crop size was very light, 50% in most places.
