Full-bodied opulent texture but yet it delivers balance and ripe tannins that have finesse, complexity and purity all the way to the finish.

The Wine Advocate — 98 pts.

Superior, given its fabulous complexity, is the 2014 Proprietary Red, a blend of 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. The bad news is there are only 175 cases of this beautiful wine that offers up notes of roasted coffee bean, white chocolate, mocha, pen ink, blackberry and cassis. When it hits the palate, the wine has great intensity without a sense of heaviness, no doubt because of the high percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Spicy as well, with loads of floral notes, this superb, full-bodied and opulent proprietary blend should drink beautifully for two decades.
