"The 2015 Guru is a roughly equal blend of Códega do Larinho, Rabigato, Viosinho and Gouveio, aged for five months in French oak (30% new, the rest second-year wood). The nose is filled with woody nuances and a touch of smoke—more dry and serious than vanilla, though. It has fine but subtle concentration, showing surprisingly good flavor dribbling over the palate. Once past the nose, in fact, this begins to sing rather pretty songs. As it warms and airs out, underlying freshness comes out and cuts through both the oak and the increasingly minor hints of smoke. I was startled to see, about an hour later at 62 degrees Fahrenheit, that it had some hints of purity, relatively speaking. The tension on the finish was lovely and there was some tannic pop, too. Its power and oak do mean that it should be part of a food pairing, not a sipping wine. It will be interesting to see how this comes along in the cellar. It may well be the best Guru in some time and it should hold rather well. I am leaning up just now; it needs to do a better job of pulling in some wood over the next year. I think it will. It might even deserve an uptick. Drink: 2017-2025. 92 points"
