Issue Issue 150

($175) Good medium-deep red-ruby. Wonderfully expressive nose melds redcurrant, cherry, minerals, tobacco, mocha and herbs, with hints of new oak and truffle. Silky and sweet, with mellow notes of truffle, tobacco and game. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. Not the equal of the 2005 or 2007 in energy.

Drink Dates 2009-2024

A blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2006 Proprietary Red offers a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of cassis, licorice, and hints of smoke, tobacco leaf, and roasted coffee beans. Deep, pure, velvety textured, and opulent, this is an atypically seductive, lush 2006 that can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.

Drink Dates 2009-2016

A very ripe style, pushing ripeness to the edge of pruny without being heavy. Rich, layered and full-bodied, turning elegant and gaining depth, with currant and blackberry fruit and fine-grained tannins.

Earthy leather, tobacco, and blackberries. Soft warm tannins that exagerate the soothing finish. Made by all star team of winemaker Andy Erickson (Screaming Eagle), vineyard manager David Abreu (Harlan, Bryant Family, Araujo, etc.), and consultant Michel Rolland (the so called "Flying Winemaker"), this wine is a nice representation of all of the talented hands that touch it from the vineyard to the bottle.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
