2011 Blankiet Estate Proprietary Red, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Blankiet Estate Proprietary Red

Our Bordeaux Medoc blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This wine is sheer power in a silk glove.

    “The 2011 Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard is super-elegant and graceful right out of the gate. Red fruit, blood orange, menthol, spice, lavender, and rose petals abound in this gracious and nuanced red. Light on its feet yet not light at all, the Proprietary Red possesses bright aromatics, nuance, and great balance.”

    Savory herbs, menthol, licorice, plums and new leather lead to dark red and black fruit in the 2011 Blankiet Estate Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard. Another impeccable, gracious wine, Blankiet’s 2011 Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard impresse s for its creaminess and volume. Hints of orange peel, rose petals and savory herbs add further dimensions of expression. This dark, brooding wine needs time to settle down, but it starts coming together nicely with time in the glass, so a few more years i n bottle will help tremendously. The 2011 is 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and drops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
