The 2015 Comptche Ridge has unusually bright and floral aromatics that rise immediately out of the glass. Once opened fully, classic earthy, loamy aromatics appear, redolent of cool forest duff and warm soil. The entry is sappy and intense, leading to a distinctly pure mid-palate, one that remains grounded but equally structured by pliant, woody tannin. The wine’s juicy, mineral-veined lingers pleasantly. Drink 2021-2028.
