Parker : 96 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet colored with a touch of purple, the 2011 Proprietary Red is a little youthfully closed, the nose slowly revealing beautiful lilacs and lavender scents with a core of blackcurrant cordial, blueberry pie and raspberry preserves plus wafts of oolong tea and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is gracefully expressed with stacks of mineral, floral and black fruit layers and a firm, grainy frame, finishing long with lingering earthy sparks. So wonderfully elegant.
