Dark garnet red with a purple hue. The nose of this classic Cabernet-based blend is incredibly flashy with aromas of fresh blueberries, blackberries, super ripe black cherries and underlying tones of earth, crushed graphite, toasted espresso beans and dark chocolate. The French oak is subtle yet present. This powerful wine boasts copious amounts of ripe red fruit, blueberry and plum. Dark chocolate and tastefully integrated oak add complexity to the full-bodied mouthfeel, while the texture and flavors linger on the palate for a good 30 seconds after enjoying. Ready to drink now and should continue to evolve for 8 - 10 years.

This perfumed expression of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot shows a great depth of complexity and deliciousness for the price. Firm, grippy tannin stars alongside dark cherry, currant, clove and tobacco, all along a softened layering of texture.

Impressive for the trim beam of spicy wild berry and earthy licorice, this is clean and persistent, featuring fine-grained tannins laced with loamy earth notes. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now. 34,000 cases made.

The 2014 Proprietary Red Blend Taken is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot and represents reasonably good value. The color is a healthy, dark ruby/purple and the wine exhibits floral red and black fruits, medium body, soft tannins and an easygoing style meant for immediate consumption. It should drink nicely for at least another 2-3 years.
