Notes from the winemaker:

"This wine’s stunning intensity begins with its inky hue. Aromas of super ripe cassis, blueberry, blackberry and fig are under- scored by worn leather, anise and shiso mint. On the palate, the entry is rich and viscous, leading to plush, dusty tannins and fetching flavors of dark, ripe berries, figs and chocolate. Warm baking spice balances minerality on the finish, inviting taste after taste of this exceptionally compelling blend."

Ratings & Reviews

95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Mocha, espresso, cloves and blackberry jam are some of many nuances that emerge from the 2010 Red Blend. A deep, rich wine, the 2010 boasts stunning aromatics, beautifully chiseled fruit and fabulous overall balance. I sense a slightly less sweet, overt style than in previous years, yet at the same time, there is plenty of richness in the glass. I suspect the 2010 will still be going strong at age 20. Today, it is flat-out gorgeous. The 2010 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2012)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2009 vintage):
"This Bordeaux-like expression offers a mix of cedar-laced tobacco, dried berry, loamy earth and herbal notes. Young and tightly wound, this unfolds slowly and gracefully, and looks like an ideal choice to lay down. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2028."—J.L. (Aug 15, 2012)

92-94 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(2009 vintage):
"Good ruby-red.  Blackberry, licorice and a tarry nuance on the nose.  Denser and fatter than the 2009 merlot, with some of that wine's saline character but more sweetness of fruit, not to mention length on the aftertaste.  In a much lusher style but still classically dry." - Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun '11)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2009 vintage):
"The 2009 Red Blend emerges from the glass with freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, minerals and pure, crystalline, dark red fruit. This is a gorgeous wine endowed with remarkable finesse. The style is weightless, elegant and totally refined. I especially like the way the wine fleshes out in the glass. The 2009 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2011)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
(2008 vintage):
"The 2008 Proprietary Red Wine blend (essentially a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec blended in) has a more opaque/purple color. With more graphite, blueberry and lilac notes, sweet tannin, medium to full body, and an elegant, gracious feel, it is more restrained than previous examples but has no shortage of richness and concentration. It looks to be a beauty in a Bordeaux style, with sweet tannins but loads of fruit – unmistakably California but French in structure. Drink it over the next 15+ years." - Robert Parker (Dec 2010)

93 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2008 vintage):
"Good deep ruby-red.  Complex nose melds briary black raspberry, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and wild herbs.  Concentrated, lush and intense, with very good purity to the nicely delineated dark fruit, spice and floral flavors.  A hint of wild herbs adds complexity.  The serious, broad tannins are sweeter than those of the merlot and arrive late.  Winemaker Erin Green notes that the 2008 reds have some light herbal qualities, "but nothing like the 2005s or 2003s, which were both more complex after five years in the bottle." - Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun '11)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2008 vintage):
"Offers a mix of tight, structured cedar, graphite, pure black cherry, currant and wild berry flavors, with touches of anise and crushed rock, ending with firm, ripe tannins and good length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made." –JL (Nov 15, 2011)
