The 2019 Red Wine Blend 26 is stunning and certainly in the same realm as the 2018. Revealing a deep purple hue, it has a vivid nose of blueberries, cassis, wildflowers, and violets as well as a medium to full-bodied, seamless style on the palate. With terrific tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and flawless balance, it's a gorgeous Spring Mountain red blend to drink over the coming 20 years or so.  The blend is 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 17% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. I absolutely love it.

96pts International Wine Report

The 2019 Proprietary Red Blend is composed of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Malbec 17% Cabernet Franc 17% Petit Verdot and it is another outstanding wine from Fe wines. It begins to impress with its wonderful aromatics of ripe dark cherries and plums, which are accented by iron, loam, violets and a lovey touch of sweet oak nuances. This possesses a gorgeous medium to full body that is beautifully structured and polished. It goes on to display outstanding concentration ending with a long, supple finish. This is extremely attractive today, especially with a few hours of air contact, that being said, this should have no problem lasting a decade or two in the cellar.

Winemaker Notes

Tar, plum, cedar, tobacco, black currant, coconut, vanilla, blackberry and orange zest in the nose. Cocoa, cherry, plum, in rich attack, turns to cedar, blackberry, tar on the mid palate. Bright blueberry, tar, plum and black truffle in a long finish with wonderful tight grain tannins with enough heft for years of aging.--Aaron Pott
