A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot, aged in 100% new Taransaud new barrels for 19 months, the 2005 Proprietary Red represents 1,500 cases. Opaque purple, with a gorgeous nose of incense, graphite, creosote and barbecue notes, the wine is full-bodied, rich and complex. Notes of forest floor, creme de cassis and blackberry fruit are present in this beautiful wine, which has sweet tannin, fresh acid, and a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel. This wine is just entering its plateau of maturity, where it should stay for another 15 or more years. (RP)
Good full ruby. Sappy aromas of black raspberry, licorice and minerals, with complicating notes of maple syrup and truffle. Lush, sweet and fruit-driven, with fresh acidity framing the flavors of black raspberry, tobacco and dark chocolate. Finishes with firm, fine tannins and lingering fruit. This was the first vintage made for Roy by Philippe Melka. The vineyard is located at the bottom of Soda Canyon, south of Stag's Leap. According to Melka, the 2005 was made from the loamy lower section of the property, while the 2006 came from the rockier upper section. (ST)
Creamy oak offers a touch of dill and cedar in the aroma. The dried currant and berry flavors are smooth, rich and intense, offering depth and complexity. Needs time in the bottle, given its tight structure. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
