En Hommage opens with aromas and flavors of blueberries, violets, black currants and plum. Additional nuances of black pepper, minerality and spice complement the driving blue fruit flavors with refined tannins that wrap around a smooth, refined and delicate core. This wine pairs nicely with grilled pork tenderloin, lamb chops, and hearty Italian dishes.
2015 vintage notes
92 points Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: "Spicy, floral lift to the aromas of crunchy red berries, black pepper, licorice and minerals. Like La Fraternité, this wine also boasts lovely inner-palate energy for the vintage, with its intense blueberry and spice flavors enlivened by a pungent note of orange peel. The slowly mounting, ripely tannic finish suggests that this wine will evolve gracefully. This wine and La Fraternité deliver a lot of flavor interest for their gentle price tags."
