A barrel sample with a deep garnet-purple color, the 2019 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It has beautifully lifted red fruit notes with loads of earthy notes of mossy tree bark and truffles plus a touch of clove oil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is fresh and lively with bold flavors and a satiny texture, finishing with a spicy kick.
