Their most expensive wine is the 2014 Profile Proprietary Red Wine, which is a proprietary blend of their best lots, in this case 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. This is a big-time winner, although whether it justifies twice the price of anything else is up to the reader. Rich, inky purple-colored, with sweet crème de cassis, blueberry, forest floor and spice box, the wine is full-bodied and opulent, with a voluptuous texture, sweet tannin, and a long finish of close to 40-45 seconds. This is a beauty and certainly the best of all these wines, but again, the pricing is high. Drink it over the next 15+ years.

(94+ points) Coming from the best lots of the estate and a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Profile offers terrific notes of cassis, toasted spices, burning embers, and licorice. Possessing full-bodied richness, it's beautifully concentrated and has terrific purity of fruit, as well as good acidity, building tannin and a great finish. It's a beautiful effort that's going to take 5-6 years to hit maturity and will keep for another two decades.

This big bold Bordeaux-inspired blend combines 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It offers a layering of dusty sage and crushed rock around tight-grained tannin that presents as soft and structured on the palate. The integrated fruit is a welcome mix of cassis and red currant.
