thirtieth Anniversary Special Edition

Our 2016 Proprietary Red opens with clear, vibrant aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and black cherry, with intriguing nuances of cardamom, vanilla, toast, and star anise that balance the intense dark fruit. A complex palate of deep blackberry and currant, with undertones of leather, is supported by firm, silky tannins. This wine honors its high elevation mountain vineyards with a rich, succulent body; a hint of dark chocolate mousse distinguishes the lengthy finish.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 1, 2018

The 2016 Proprietary Red is fabulous, just as it was from the bottle. Silky, supple, and also quite structured on the palate, 2016 is a stunningly beautiful, vivid wine. Dark cherry/plum jam, bittersweet chocolate, rose petal, lavender, spice, and menthol build into the huge, unctuous finish. There is so much to like.
