These all carry to an elegant, seamless yet full-bodied and powerful red that has seamless tannins, flawless balance, good acidity, and a big finish. This is about as good as 2017 gets. It's going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 25+ years. As always, these releases from Blankiet rely on elegance and finesse just as much as overt power and richness.

Inky black cherry, plum, graphite, menthol and licorice all come together nicely in the glass for an overall impeccable impression. Medium in body and quite graceful, the 2017 shows beautifully, even in the early going. This is a decidedly laid-back style, but it all works nicely. Aromatic, savory and highly delineated, the 2017 Proprietary Red is one of the successes of the year. -- Antonio Galloni
