The 2016 Proprietary Red is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 100% French oak barrels. Very deep purple-black in color, it displays intense blackcurrants, warm blackberries and blueberry compote notes with suggestions of tree bark, incense and tar plus a waft of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied and firm, with exquisitely ripe tannins, it delivers wonderful length and depth. 150 cases produced.

Subtle and complex with plum, chocolate and hazelnut character, but always reserved. Medium to full body, lightly soft tannins and a juicy finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and petit verdot.
