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.
