Andremily No. 4 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
Jeb DunnuckThe 2015 No. 4 checks in as a blend of 90% Syrah, 6% Viognier, and 4% Mourvèdre that spent 22 months in 70% new French oak. Sporting an inky purple color, it offers a killer perfume of blackberries, blueberries, exotic flowers, orange marmalade, violets, Asian spices, and graphite. Getting a serious "Wow" in the notes for its sensational complexity, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, stunning purity of fruit, and a focused, chiseled yet voluptuous texture. This beauty has everything: complexity, depth, richness, purity, and elegance.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 No 4 is composed of 90% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 6% Viognier and saw 35% whole cluster, while spending around 22 months in French oak (70% new). Sporting a very deep purple-black color, it reveals vibrant black currants, blackberries and mulberries notes plus touches of sandalwood, espresso, black soil and stewed tea. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and with lovely energy, there is a good firm backbone of grainy tannins supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and savory. 550 cases were made.
