Deep, dark ink with touches of ruby and Ferrari Red in appearance. An explosion of cedar, salt, rosemary and violet with lavender, roses, blackberries and vanilla extract, lingering of tulips and blueberry pie. Soft entrance evolving on a fruity mid palate with touches of blueberry and blackberry jam, lingering on granular fine tannins with plum and cherry pit.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot
James Suckling - 95 Points: An aromatic red with notes of ripe cassis and blackberries, flowers, chocolate and cigar box. Full body, an array of plush, polished tannins and juicy, delicious fruit. Long finish. 90% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cabernet franc, 4% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Try in 2024.
Jeb Dunnuck - 93 Points: Mostly Cabernet, the value-priced 2019 Red Blend Proprietary Red sports a dense purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of pure creme de cassis, graphite, tobacco leaf, and classy oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, round, and supple, it tastes as if it cost three times the price. Drink it over the coming decades. Best After 2022
