Classically balanced, the wine has incredible elegance and length. The careful, small-scale winemaking preserved the complex layers of aromatics. The cool fall, and an early harvest date, provided for the full spectrum of flavors, from dried herbs through juicy red fruit to rich black fruit and chocolate. This vintage gave us the freshness and minerality that we strive for but can be very elusive in a rich powerful wine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Proprietary Red, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon ,exhibits plenty of underbrush, chocolate, cocoa, espresso, and berry fruit as well as elegant, medium-bodied flavors, impressive purity, and a style that suggests consumption is warranted over the next decade.
