2013 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1254380 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Proprietary Red, which is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is another prodigious effort from Blankiet. Inky purple, with notes of lead pencil shavings, white chocolate, espresso bean, blackberry and cassis, the wine hits the palate with a crescendo of blue and black fruits, a touch of toast, licorice and foresty notes. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and impressive, this wine will age for at least 30 more years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A brooding, dense red, the 2013 Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard captures all of the mineral and savory intensity of the year. Today, the 2013 is incredibly tight and shut down, with massive tannins and structure backing up the fruit. It will be quite a few years before the 2013 is ready to deliver the full breadth of its potential. Even today, though, it is magnificent. Next to the Mythicus, the Proprietary Red is a bit more aromatic, with less overt oak influence in its flavor profile and contours. In 2013, the Cabernet Franc is higher than in either 2012 or 2014. The blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
