2017 Highwayman Proprietary Red
Tough to follow the 2020 SF Chronicle Wine Competition Gold Medal winner but this latest vintage of our coveted and revered Proprietary Blend is yet another stunning display of when epic vineyards and exceptional winemaking collide. From the color—a deep dark plum—to the nose, a gripping whiff of violets, cherries, leather and tobacco, this beauty promises to be a bold sipper. The bright black fruit, blueberry, and cassis are complemented by a juxtaposition of wood and metal shavings, creating a nice harmony. Toasty oak, black tea leaves and grippy tannins round this out to present a solid collectible. Pairs well with Italian sausage and wild mushroom pizza, braised lamb shanks with rosemary and...empty wine glasses! Drinking well now or hold until 2028.
