While the exact blend of the 2020 Proprietary Red Abstract hasn't been disclosed, winemaker Dave Phinney allows that he starts with Grenache and builds on that, usually with Syrah and Petite Sirah. The wine also includes some Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The wine offers up scents of black cherries, accented by garrigue-like herbs and spice, including a hint of lavender. It's full-bodied without being heavy, rather open-knit and easy to drink, with a long finish that's both mouthwatering and gently dusty. I wouldn't bet on cellaring it for a decade, but it's delicious now, so why wait?

Product Description:

Immediate aromatics escape the glass: blueberry, mirabelle plum, ripe raspberry, bing cherry and enchanting musk. On entry, the wine is seamless and enveloping with notes of black plum, sweet cassis and blueberry compote on the mid-palate. Textured and long on the finish, the wine closes with a hint of dried lavender and dark chocolate. -- Winemaker's Notes
