" The 2007 Proprietary Red comes mostly from the To Kalon vineyard, with 13% of the fruit from Pritchard Hill. It has a deep garnet color and bursts out of the glass with pure cassis, vibrant blueberry preserves and blackberry pie scents with a profound underlying fragrance of candied violets, cinnamon stick, cloves and underbrush plus notions of beef drippings and pencil shavings. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited with firm, ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, it has wonderfully pure layers, finishing very long. It has incredible delineation and should be very long lived."
