Opulent notes of Rainier cherry, violets, fresh blackberry, and plum mingle serenely with aromas of dark chocolate, molasses and pencil shavings. Round and resonant, this wine captures the undeniable deliciousness of this spectacular vintage.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Proprietary Red, a slightly different blend from the 2012 of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc, is a much smaller production of 350 cases. This wine, which ratchets up the level of intensity, has an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of blackberry, blueberry and cassis as well as hints of espresso, white flowers, and subtle background toast. The wine hits the palate with a cascade of gorgeous fruit, sweet tannin, great delineation and acidity, and a long, velvety, voluptuously textured mouthfeel. This big, inky, thick, juicy wine should age beautifully for 25-30 years.

Wine SpectatorOffers a distinctive charry oak frame, imparting a core of smoky oak and dried berry flavors. The mix of plum and wild berry notes peeks through the wood and tannins at the very end. Best from 2020 through 2032. 500 cases made.
