    As a comparison to the 2014 vintage of this wine, the 2015 Sena resulted in 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Carmenere, 12% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, with now 12% of the wine matured in new Stockinger oak foudres and the rest in barrique for some 22 months. 2015 might have been a slightly warmer year, but the resulting wine is lower in alcohol and higher in acidity, which provide for a more vibrant mouthfeel and a more focused expression of the character of the place. This vintage has half a degree less alcohol, and the acidity is a little more pungent; and, the amount of wine in foudre seems to help the oak to show better integrated. This is dry, nicely textured, and the replacement of the Merlot by Malbec seems to have also added to the refinement of the tannins that are super-elegant. 66,000 bottles were filled in February 2017. The price has not yet been set.

    Stunning aromas of black currant, stone, blueberry and licorice. Also iodine. Floral. Perfumed. Full body, fantastic density of fruit and ripe tannins. It goes on for minutes on the palate with such energy and focus. Touch of chewiness on the finish. A complex and complete wine that delivers a generosity with firmness. Drink in 2021 but already a classic.

    A suave and focused red, with crisp cherry and currant flavors backed by crunchy acidity. Hints of sandalwood and cardamom linger on the taut finish. Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2023. 5,000 cases made.

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Carmenère, 5% Cabernet Franc.

    Mid crimson, bright. More intense nose than the Chadwick 2016. But a little dilute on the palate. Good dry, appetising finish.

    Purple in color. Medium rim variation. Medium legs. Blackberry, Black currant (cassis). Medium/Full bodied. Narrow texture. Medium finish. Not being a pro, I echo the JR review, I think it needs 3-5 yrs of cellaring before it may be ready.
