WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - A blend of mainly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of other traditional Bordeaux varieties, this treads perilously close to being too ripe. It shows a hint of raisin, but not enough to interfere with the beauty of the blackberry jam and sweet oak flavors. The tannins are exquisite, in the way of a top Napa Cab.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Proprietary Red flows from the glass with super-ripe red cherries, plums, graphite, smoke, licorice and spices. It shows gorgeous palate presence in a racy, sleek style. In 2009 the blend is 37% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 13% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. Rated 90+
