The 2015 Transverse has developed beautifully in the bottle. The aromas are a mix of sharp and round, with baked apple, blackberry and baby aspirin balanced by tangerine, pine resin, and a slight minty note. The palate is luxuriously rich and full with more of those darker fruits but balanced by some bright fruit flavors of lychee and cranberry. This is a wonderfully complex wine that finishes with nice round tannins that stretch this finish out for a long, fun ride.
