The 2017 Oakville Proprietary Red Wine is a gorgeous wine based on co-ferments from two great sites in Oakville and is a mix of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in new barrels. It has a rich, opulent bouquet of cassis and blackcurrant fruits intermixed with plenty of chocolate, spice, loamy earth, and dried herb aromas and flavors. It's a beautiful, seamless, full-bodied 2017 that has great tannin quality, plenty of mid-palate depth, and more length than most in the vintages. It’s going to evolve for two decades or more.
