The 2015 Proprietary Red is a blend of 53% Merlot with smaller portions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it is scented of warm plums, black cherry preserves and spice box with wafts of garrigue and black pepper. Medium-bodied with great expression and vivacity at this price point, it has a chewy texture and pleasant earthiness coming through on the finish.
