2019 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 2019 Paradise Hills Proprietary Red is a thing of beauty. A cellar worthy wine, which immediately begins to impress with its perfumed aromatics of ripe dark currants and black cherries, that are woven together with pencil shavings, exotic spices, fresh dark florals, herbs, tobacco and mineral nuances that all come together and burst from the glass. On the palate, this is medium to full-bodied with absolutely incredible overall balance and structure. This stunning red goes on to impress with its wonderful concentration, precision and beautifully pure ripe dark fruits that continue to captivate the senses as they build up to the gorgeous finish. The 2019 is a masterful display of both elegance and precision, and it should go on to age brilliantly for many years to come.

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Blankiet Estate Proprietary Red is straight-up incredible, with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of cassis, graphite, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf. It reminds me of a great vintage of Château Lafite with its elegance and purity, and it builds slowly on the palate, with ripe tannins, a seamless mouthfeel, and a great finish. It’s not massive by any means but is just pure class. It should have 30 years of longevity. The blend is 83.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot that saw 80% new French oak.
