Robert Parker (95)

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.

James Suckling (93)

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.

Winespectator (93)

Shows impressive elegance and finesse. For all the size and power here, there's also a seam of grace, with dark berry, licorice and cedary oak flavors. Offers a strong, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Vinous (94)

The 2016 Proprietary Red is delicate and nuanced, with Cabernet Franc very much in evidence in the wine's flavor profile and overall feel. Silky and expressive, the Proprietary Red has so much to offer. Floral notes add lift to a core of red-toned fruit in this classy, elegant wine from Carte Blanche. Everything just falls into place effortlessly.
