Jeb Dunnuck thinks the 2019 may even surpass 2018 in its rich, concentrated beauty. Sugarloaf Mountain Merlot meets Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in a heavenly marriage. Dark cherry, plum and raspberry sink into bloody, iron and chocolate depths. This Bevan beast could use a few years in the cellar to cool its heels, but it’ll cruise for 15-20 years. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this hit our most-wanted list in a few years – with a much higher price tag, naturally.
More bloody, iron, and bouquet garni-like nuances emerge from the 2019 Bryn Proprietary Red, which might just surpass the 2018. Beautifully concentrated, rich, and full-bodied, it offers a slightly more red fruited, savory, chocolate style and is already complex.
