Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 The Surrealist Proprietary Red—a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with 20% Petit Verdot—opens with a very spicy nose with earth and pepper aromas and notions of cassis, black berries, cedar and toast, with hints of violets and menthol. Rich, spicy and opulent in the full-bodied mouth with firm, wonderfully ripe tannins, this is super intense and powerful with a long, licorice-laced finish. 350 cases were made.
A blend of 67% Petite Sirah and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Proprietary Red Knockout has an opaque purple-black color and nose of baked plums and blackberry preserves with spice box, violets, licorice and sandalwood. Full, rich and concentrated in the mouth with a firm, chewy texture, it's long, layered and quite earthy on the finish. Only 78 cases produced.
