"The 2014 Proprietary Red Reserve is a Rhône Ranger blend of Syrah, Durif and other grapes, in particular Rubired, a cross between Alicante and Tinto Cao. I don't think I've ever tasted a wine from it, but the grape is known for producing dark wines in hot climates. This savory wine offers rich, ripe blackberry fruit, a touch of plum and prune, and good attack, with a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a spicy finish. Drink it over the next several years."
