Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
The 2014 Proprietary Red the Rescuer, which is 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot has more plumpness and richness, coming across like a Napa Pomerol with its mocha, black cherry and berry fruit. It has a nice plush palate, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a sexy finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
Styled after the incredible wines from the “Right Bank” in Bordeaux, this extremely limited production estate blend is a soft, yet dense expression of three very elegant varietals, but with Merlot as the showcase. It shows star anise, crushed clove, dried sage and black cherry on the nose. Ultra fat mid palate yields to a silky smooth finish of cinnamon toast, dark chocolate, fresh black berries and cherries that will stay with you for a long time. Aged in French oak to create a long-term, age-worthy blend, this wine will cellar very well for 10+ years.
