There are three proprietary reds, starting with the 2014 Proprietary Red Adam’s Blend, 91% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fragrant forest floor notes intermixed with red and blackcurrants, flowers and spice are followed by a medium-bodied, fruity and well-made Cabernet Franc that seems to cut a swath between a riper Loire Valley style and one from Bordeaux. This is well-made, attractive, elegant and seductive. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
This Cabernet Franc dominate blend “bridges” the two main varietals from Bordeaux, the Left Bank which favors Cabernet Sauvignon and the Right Bank which favors Merlot and completes the series of proprietary blends from Canard. This wine is rich and medium bodied with long soft tannins. Perfumed nose with hints of strawberry jam, red plums and violets. A smooth delicate entry yields to great structure and a long finish of ground rose buds, cocoa, rhubarb, sweet cranberries and cherries. Aged in French oak to create a long-term, ageworthy blend, this will easily cellar well for 10+ years.
