The 2015 Dalem is fabulous. A rush of super-ripe black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, spice, menthol and licorice gives the wine its exotic, super-ripe personality. There is not a whole lot of subtlety here, but the 2015 exudes notable richness in a flamboyant style that offers tons of near- and medium-term appeal. Tasted two times.

Lovely dinner with close friends! Full bodied, silky smooth plum fruit with tobacco. Give this a few years and it will be golden.
