TASTING NOTE:

This vintage—a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec—marks the winery’s 30th anniversary. Winemaker Bibiana González Rave vinifies each variety separately in more than 50 lots and ages the wine in 85% new French oak for 20 months. Fruit and acid play magnificently together, invigorating vivid aromas and flavors of blue fruit and white pepper. A layer of graphite keeps dark cherry and a vanilla-tinged toastiness in check. Leather, licorice, and blueberry lead the way to a juicy finish

A concentrated and essence-like nose of elderberries, blackcurrant compote, peppermint and forest floor, but also hot stones, pressed violets and fresh eucalyptus. So complete and complex on the palate, which is full-bodied and layered with super velvety tannins, wrapping the seamless fruit together. A mouthful of pure silk. Drink in 2025.

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Proprietary Red is a modern-day classic that has tons of crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco, and earth-driven aromas and flavors. It's deep, pure, layered, and elegant on the palate, with a great finish. Feel free to drink this beauty any time over the coming 20-25 years.

Composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Proprietary Red Wine gives up bold notes of fresh blackcurrants, black cherries and wild blueberries with hints of cigar box, tilled soil, dried bay leaves and smoked meats plus a hint of lavender. Medium-bodied and fantastically intense in the mouth, it has a wonderful core of muscular fruit and a firm, ripe, fine-grained frame to match, finishing very long
