From the original Oakville estate, the 2013 Proprietary Red (which spends most of its time in T-5 Taransaud as well as Darnajou new oak) is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It is a magnificent wine, tasting like a Pauillac from Oakville. The wine has notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, graphite, incense and charcoal embers interwoven with blackberry, cassis and unsmoked cigar tobacco. Full-bodied and multi-layered, with exceptional purity and depth, its great intensity and richness make this a prodigious effort that should drink well for 30 or more years. (RP)
The 2013 Futo opens with exquisite aromatics that give the wine gorgeous lift and presence. Mocha, espresso, raspberry jam, graphite, leather and cedar wrap around the palate. Deep, implosive and beautifully textured throughout, the 2013 is a total model of class. Today, the 2013 is dark, brooding and in need of cellaring, but it is a special wine. The blend is 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, with the Franc particularly expressive at this stage. (AG)
What a gorgeous wine with blackberry, black currant, blueberry, and pine needles. Complex savory undertones. Sweet tobacco. Mushroom. Full body, ultra-fine tannins. It goes on for minutes. This really has purity and refinement.
