Lovely ripe fruit aromas of wild cherry, boysenberry and cassis, enriched by complex loam, dark chocolate and toasted oak scents, prefigure the marvelously round, mouth-filling palate of this wonderfully deep, concentrated red blend. Intense and potent dark cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and blackcurrant flavors are joined in the very long, succulent finish by spice, sweet oak and mineral tones. Buoyed by big, but very supple tannins, this luscious red is immensely appealing now, but it will develop even greater allure with another 8-10 years’ aging.
Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Proprietary Red Vaca offers fragrant red and black currants notes with dried leaves, dark chocolate, espresso and bay leaves nuances plus a waft of fertile loam. Big, rich and spicy in the full-bodied mouth, with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, it finishes long and layered.
