Reviews

  • "92+ points. Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, the 2014 Old Master Proprietary Red has a deep garnet-purple color and exotic spice-laced nose over notions of cassis, wild blueberries, preserved plums and dusty earth, plus wafts of cedar chest and potpourri. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers spectacular energy, featuring taut, muscular black and blue fruit with a firm, grainy backbone and plenty of freshness, finishing with great length and a spicy kick."
