The 2017 Blacktail Proprietary Red Blend MMXVII is a blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Malbec, 23% Petite Sirah and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed to begin, requiring some swirling to reveal a seducing perfume of lilacs, baked plums, blueberry pie and spice cake with hints of potpourri, unsmoked cigars and chocolate mint. The palate is medium to full-bodied and concentrated, but not in the least heavy, delivering layer upon layer of perfumed black fruits and a velvety texture, finishing fragrant and long, long, long. It is an exercise in polish and poise. 305 cases were made.

The 2017 Blacktail, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot is gorgeous. It also shows how complementary certain varieties can be in a blend. Savory herb, black pepper and licorice accents add striking nuance. Aromatic and savory, with tons of fruit, this bold super- expressive red is truly impressive.
