Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pipeau is a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc matured in 80% new oak. It has a clean and pure black cherry and cassis-scented bouquet that is neatly embroidered with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied, svelte and smooth in the mouth, yes, a little oaky and obvious, but there is the fruit to back it up. This is a guilty pleasure. I would like to smack its wrist for being too oaky, but it feels balanced and I have little doubt that after 3-4 years, it could turn out delicious!

Wine SpectatorThis delivers a blast of plum and blackberry compote flavors, with a black licorice frame and sweet toast and spice details draped on the finish. A bit obvious in style, but will certainly have fans. Drink now through 2020. 11,000 cases made.
