2015 Oculus

An OCULUS was first used by the Romans in buildings like the Pantheon - a window in a dome or wall to the outside. At Mission Hill, our oculus provides the only natural light into our underground barrel cellar, blasted out of volcanic rock that is otherwise hidden from the world. Our complex Oculus Bordeauxstyle wine is the result of meticulous selection in the vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine. 

The weather in 2015 was pretty close to perfect for grape growing. It began with an early, mild spring with budburst two weeks early. In September, temperatures cooled to near normal providing a long and plentiful harvest which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening.

Lifted and intense with notes of dark plum, black cherry and cassis. The palate is structured, concentrated and well balanced with notes of fresh herbs, tobacco and spice. With a tremendous tannin structure and excellent length on the finish, 2015 Oculus will age exceptionally well.
