Dark fruit tones of plum, blackberry and black current that are dominated by the mineral, granite and soy aromas. The most mineral dominated young L’Ermitage I have tasted. Palate has nice flesh with firm mineral driven tannins and lifting acidity. Berry and cassis fruit on palate is muted but there are graphite, all spice and floral accents giving the wine real depth. This is a finely balance wine but not certainly not open for business. I believe this need the better part of 5 to 7 more years in the cellar.

Tragically young, but interesting to taste (blind) alongside 2014 Trinity Hill "Homage" which was already ready to drink. Old world Vs new world prestige winemaking style.

Reductive, slightly mercaptan. Supple Purple fruit and chocolate notes.
Strong astringency and acid, well balanced with a round mouthfeel. On the way to being velvety. Little white pepper and green pepper.

Coming along nicely
