"The 2015 Mosaic is mostly a 45/34 blend of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with 21% Merlot, aged for 18 months in a mixture of 16% new and mostly well-used French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. This vintage marks a small departure from the winery's norm. While most of it is still from the Middleburg AVA, 10% (which is projected to increase) is now from Shenandoah Valley, known for producing fresher wines. "We own and manage both properties," said winemaker Corry Craighill. This adds a layer of concentration to the 2013 this issue, takes away some green and presents a more balanced picture overall. Hopefully, it retains its mid-palate and shows development along the way. The structure is just moderate, so I wouldn't expect this to make old bones, but it should hold for a decade, at the least. - Mark Squires"
