Appearance: This wine shows a deep crimson color in the glass. Aroma: Brambly aromatics are layered with dark plum, cassis, ripe fig, and a touch of anise and cigar box. Flavor: A powerful, fruit-driven entry on the palate-with notes of blackberry, molasses, bakers chocolate and leather-is supported by plush tannins that last over a lingering, juicy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe proprietary red wine blend has always been dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but it includes other Bordeaux varieties as well. It is kept 22-24 months in 100% new oak. The 2015 Proprietary Red Wine, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, has super concentration, a massive mouthfeel, heady, intense flavors of black and blue fruits, chocolate, wood spice and barbecue notes. It is a killer effort and, as so many of the 2015s, another magnificent vintage for Northern California.

Wine SpectatorWell-crafted, capturing the core of dark berry, earth, graphite and cedar flavors, with firm, ripe tannins and good length. Needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2032. 2,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis blends 79% Cabernet Sauvignon with 16% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The brawny nose opens in black currant and licorice, paving the way for the bold, rich flavors of lavender, blueberry and graham cracker to come.
