The 2011 Proprietor's Blend exhibits an inky deep, black cherry hue and purple rim.
Deep, exotic notes on the nose, whiffs of spear mint and flakes of dark chocolate compliment a melange of dense blue berry fruits.
The strong Cabernet Sauvignon influence adds a salty liquorice attack following to cassis, grilled herbs and meaty edge from the dollop of Shiraz.
Though full-bodied and rich, the mid-palate is fine and lively, leading to a polished, pure velvety, sweet-fruited finish.
