Wine Spectator 93 points - A rich, powerful expression of black licorice, graphite, dark berry and cedary, toasty oak, this is well-proportioned and focused, with all the elements headed in the right direction. The tannins are edgy, in a pleasing way. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028.-J.L..March/2016


Vinous 94 points - A real knock-out, the 2013 Proprietary Red is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. A wine of tension, energy and opulence, the 2013 has all the signatures of the vintage in spades. Red cherry jam, smoke, licorice, spices and white pepper are some of the notes that meld into the super-expressive, delineated finish. The 2013 is the first vintage of the Proprietary Red that is more than 50% estate, while the rest of fruit was sourced from Stagecoach and Rancho Chimiles. .Antonio Galloni, October/2015


eRobertParker.com 93 points - The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend (15.2% alcohol) shows gorgeously sweet tannins that involve a voluptuously textured, full-bodied, stunningly rich wine with loads of blue, black and red fruits. It has the full fruit spectrum, terrific aromatics and a real opulence and richness. The freshness of the 2013 might even eclipse that of 2012, so this could be a 20-year wine in the making. 93-95 Points.Robert Parker, October/2014

James SucklingSo much purple fruit here like blueberries as well as minerals and black pepper. Full body, firm and silky tannins. Tight and compressed style with great persistence. Better in 2020, but so gorgeous now. THE TOP 100 REDS OF NAPA VALLEY 2016

Wine EnthusiastA powerfully rich and concentrated Bordeaux-style blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller percentages of four other Bordeaux varieties, this wine presents itself as juicy and fresh on entry, with high-toned sparks of cranberry, cherry and cassis. It takes on more strength and structure as it opens, suggesting its worth for the cellar. Hold until 2023-2028
