The 2015 La Gargone is a big step up from the Caduce. Ripe, flashy and powerful, the 2015 offers a gorgeous combination of freshness and ripeness. Leather, smoke, licorice, dark cherry and plum are fused together in a deep, unctuous wine that delivers the goods, and then some. La Gargone is 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. The varietal mix here is a big plus in 2015. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Gargone from Domaine du Bouscaut is a blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon that was machine-harvested on October 2 at 21 hectoliters per hectare. It has a very intense, heady bouquet with opulent kirsch, crème de cassis and vanilla aromas, the 70% new oak quite pronounced. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, very ripe, but the acidity maintains adequate balance, smooth and silky towards the finish. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2029
