The 1999 Proprietary Red, made from Cabernet Sauvignon with only a dollop of Cabernet Franc blended in, boasts a saturated purple color along with complex, smoky aromatics consisting of espresso, licorice, blackberry, cassis, and mineral scents. It is full-bodied, with noticeable structure, and a pure finish. The vintage's cool climate tannins are obvious in this dramatic, beautifully made debut offering. It should be at its best between 2006-2016. RP

Healthy full red. Rich aromas of plum, raspberry, camphor, wild herbs and spices, plus hints of violet and lilac. Juicy and spicy on the palate, with harmonious acidity framing the flavors of red fruits, flowers and cedar. Concentrated for a wine from young vines but not particularly deep; this has just enough mid-palate stuffing to support its tannins. I’d drink this over the next several years.- Stephen Tanzer (5/215)
