The first vintage was released in 2005. Like the great wines from the "Right Bank" villages of St. Emilion in Bordeaux, this highly rated 2011 Right Bank Proprietary Red is a blend of 68% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This trickier vintage has great opulence and a deep, forward, precocious nose of roasted coffee, black and red currants, forest floor, cedar wood and a touch of roasted herbs. It is ripe, medium-bodied, fleshy and should be very quick developer. In face, it is already close to full maturity, where it should last for another 8-10 years. Perfect for steak, veal chops or duck breast.
