93 Points - Rick VanSickle
The 2015 Stone Eagle is very intense and complicated, immediately evident in the deep and dark colour of the wine. The nose is complex and layered with aromatics of black fruits, dried herbs, exotic spices and freshly turned earth. The palate is wonderfully integrated as all of the complexities of the nose materialize on the palate to synergize perfectly with the exceptional structure. Blackberries, blueberries, olive tapenade, tobacco and leather appear on the palate. Pronounced mouthfeel, as the refined tannins and acidity balance the flavour profile. A surprisingly delicate, lingering finish allows for lasting enjoyment of the complexities of this amazing wine.
