Alcohol/vol 14.8%
The 2018 Roy Estate Mr. Evans Proprietary Red is a superbly balanced wine that perfectly reflects the elegance of the 2018 growing season. It offers a dazzling bouquet of ripe black plum complemented by the freshness of currant and cranberry. Beneath this generous fruit is a savory quality evoking mountain herbs, sage and cedar. Crafted primarily from Roy Estate's single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon with small additions of Merlot and Petit Verdot, the wine is unapologetically dense and lush. Yet despite its substantial presence in the glass, the 2018 Roy Estate Mr. Evans possesses ample acidity and pronounced, well-calibrated tannins that lend the wine noteworthy tension. A wine of many layers and superlative refinement, its lengthy finish suggests toffee, cocoa nibs and warm spices owing to 19 months spent in 100% new French oak. The wine is highly approachable today and will achieve even greater complexity over the next 15 years.

The 2018 Mr. Evans Proprietary Red checks in as 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, all aged 19 months in French oak. It's a big, rich, slightly monolithic wine offering cassis and blue fruits as well as some violet and earthy tobacco notes. The purity of fruit is impressive, it has a rich, mouth-filling texture, and fine tannins, it just needs 4-5 years of bottle age to gain complexity.

The 2018 Proprietary Red Mr. Evans is plump, juicy and inviting. Inky dark plum, blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, cedar and new leather are all kicked up in this forward, unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend from Roy Estate.
