Wine AdvocateMedium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red Abstract (composed of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache) leaps from the glass with notes of raspberry preserves, kirsch and potpourri with touches rose hips, cinnamon stick and tar. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely plush texture and tons of spicy red fruit, it finishes with a peppery lift. 41,000 cases produced.
Wine SpectatorModerately complex, though loaded with zesty, supple fruit and offering appealing notes of black raspberry, smoky beef and cracked pepper. Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2022. 32,000 cases made.
