99pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red is simply singing on the nose, revealing fragrant red and black currant notes plus hints of cinnamon stick, lavender, garrigue, forest floor and pencil shavings. The medium to full-bodied, delicately played palate is wonderfully spicy, with a quiet sophistication and decadence about it, sporting ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with exotic undertones. Very classy wine! This was tasted as a barrel sample. (97-99pts)

 

94pts Vinous 

The 2015 Red Wine is a dark, unctuous wine. Blackberry jam, cloves, new leather and spice all fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. Two thousand fifteen was a very challenging growing season, and yet Bob Levy and Martha McClellan squeezed every ounce of potential out of what Mother Nature had to offer. This powerful, voluptuous wine was a lot to offer.

 

Winemaker Notes

Profound opaque purple wine with beautiful notes of incense, charcoal embers, blackberry and cassis, coffee, a hint of chocolate and spring flowers. The perfect integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol has resulted in a massive, super-intense, magnificent example of Napa viticulture.
