Vinous (Jan. 2020) Review of 2017 Proprietary Red, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Blankiet Estate Proprietary Red

Review by Antonio Galloni

Rating: (95)

The 2017 Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard is super-expressive and classy from start to finish. Inky black cherry, plum, graphite, menthol and licorice all come together nicely in the glass for an overall impeccable impression. Medium in body and quite graceful, the 2017 shows beautifully, even in the early going. This is a decidedly laid-back style, but it all works nicely. Aromatic, savory and highly delineated, the 2017 Proprietary Red is one of the successes of the year.
