91 Points - new release
Scott Palazzo makes a small amount of this Bordeaux-style red from Napa Valley that is one of our best discoveries of the year!
91 Points Robert Parker: "The 2011 Right Bank Proprietary Red is a blend of 68% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. A strong effort in this much trickier vintage (which was excessively maligned, if truth be known), the wine has good 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 a very quick developer. In fact, it is already close to full maturity, where it should last for another 8-10 years."
