Review by Antonio Galloni
The 2016 Proprietary Red exudes a measure of depth and intensity I don’t recall seeing here in the past. A rush of black cherry, plum, graphite, lavender, spice and menthol make a strong opening statement. Plush, dark and explosive to its core, the 2016 possesses remarkable balance, not to mention tons of class. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s aromatic signatures even further. This is a hugely promising wine from Claude and Katherine Blankiet.
