Lot #305. Brand Proprietary Red 2014

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"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 . . . . This is a large, 110-acre estate on Pritchard Hill with 12 acres of vineyard planted at 1,350 feet above Lake Hennessey." Wine Advocate #227, Oct 2016
