The dense ruby/purple 2007 Proprietary Red, a 1,400-case blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot, exhibits an impressive chocolatey nose with lots of berry fruit, coffee bean, mocha, and earthy/forest floor notes. Complex and dense with silky tannins, and superb elegance combined with richness, it can be approached now, but it will be even better in 4-5 years. It should last for 20+ years.
Good deep, full ruby. Musky, wild aromas of minerals, truffle, smoked meat and caramel reminded me of Pomerol. Lush and savory in the mouth, with a rocky quality adding complexity to the slightly grapey dark fruit flavors. Not a wine of huge depth, but potentially the best release yet from this property, offering plenty of sex appeal and sweetness. Winemaker Philippe Melka notes that this is a cool site, harvested early.
