Deep Ruby. Finely tuned cassis aromas, a touch of earth, graphite and meat spice. A full-bodied, deeply textured palate with a spicy, savory complexity.
"The 2010 Proprietor's Blend consists of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. It demonstrates just a little more precision on the nose than the 2009 although there are broadly similar. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins. It is more opulent than the 2009 with beautiful pure cassis and blackberry fruit towards the rounded, sensual finish. This is a hole in one."
The Wine Advocate
"Dark cocoa and mint notes surround the core of lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit in this red, followed by a plush, smoky feel on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot."
