A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 11% Merlot, the 2014 Proprietary Estate Blend displays a deep garnet-purple color and nose of blueberry pie, crème de cassis, baked berries and spice box, plus touches of mocha, violets, black soil and charcoal. The very full-bodied palate reveals a behemoth of a Bordeaux blend, offering concentrated blue and black fruit notes and a very spicy undercurrent, framed by velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with great persistence.
92 Points Vinous
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Selection incorporates a good bit of Malbec and Merlot. It is also made in a riper, denser style, with a heavier toast/torrefaction component and higher ripeness as well. At times, the alcohol and new oak are on the edge. This is in an especially seamless, powerful style.

92 Points James Suckling
Deep, rich, savory and rather earthy, this concentrated Central Coast red combines ripe blackberries and mulberries with generous, plush tannins and a bold, long finish. Just beginning to open up and probably has many years of life ahead of it. Drink or hold.
91 Points Wine Spectator
Lushly spiced, with a deep well of inky red plum, cherry and raspberry flavors, supported by silky tannins. The creamy finish offers cappuccino and chocolate accents. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2022. 1,380 cases made. — KM
