JS 93 Pts - According to James Suckling - "Fresh and beautiful with blueberry, boysenberry and spice character. Hints of cedar and wood too. Full body, firm tannins and a bright finish. Gorgeous. Drink or hold."
Wine Spectator 92 Pts. - Refined and complex, with floral red currant, toasted spice and mineral aromas leading to well-structured flavors of dark plum, espresso and grilled herb. Ripe tannins frame the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2026.
According to Robert Parker - "There are only 286 cases of the 2012 Proprietary Red Blend C2, which is from both ends of north Napa Valley. The wine possesses an attractive dense purple color, good acidity, a monolithic character, but a lot of fruit, body, purity and texture....."

Fruit selection is from our two top single vineyard wines, SummitVine Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon and Michael Black Vineyard Merlot with an assist from the Chinn Vineyard Petit Verdot." 54% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot. 14.8% ABV.
