Starting with the 2016 Proprietary Red, which is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it offers a concentration, layered, and full-bodied profile to go with complex blue fruits (cassis and blueberries), tobacco leaf, violets, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s incredibly pure and elegant, has ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish, all suggesting a solid two decades of longevity.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up expressive notes of crushed black cherries, cassis and blackberry pie with hints of cigar boxes, menthol, cardamom and dark chocolate with a waft of lilacs. The palate is full-bodied, very firm and lively with a great core of tightly wound, muscular fruit and loads of mineral accents, finishing very long and perfumed. 605 cases produced.- LPB
