  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A dense, powerful expression of loamy earth, crushed rock and gravelly dark berry, shaded by firm, cedary oak. Dense and tannic, this begs for cellaring, though the flavors keep unfolding on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2032. 350 cases made.

    The 2013 Proprietary Red, a slightly different blend from the 2012 of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc, is a much smaller production of 350 cases. This wine, which ratchets up the level of intensity, has an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of blackberry, blueberry and cassis as well as hints of espresso, white flowers, and subtle background toast. The wine hits the palate with a cascade of gorgeous fruit, sweet tannin, great delineation and acidity, and a long, velvety, voluptuously textured mouthfeel. This big, inky, thick, juicy wine should age beautifully for 25-30 years.
