BLANKIET ESTATE Proprietary Red, Paradise Hills Vineyard 2017

The 2017 Paradise Hills Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is sensational. The Blankiet’s and winemaker Graeme MacDonald decided not to bottle the flagship Mythicus and rather blend the juice into the Proprietary Red, it was a decision that looks to have paid off. This exceptional red instantly begins to impress with its wonderful purity, as it releases gorgeous aromas of dark cherries and red currants along with spring flowers, graphite, spices and licorice nuances that all emerge beautifully from the glass. The medium/full body is impeccably structured and well-defined, with outstanding overall balance and finesse. It goes on to impress as it displays remarkable elegance and poise all the way through the long graceful finish. This is an absolutely magnificent wine that is striking now, but should become even more compelling as it evolves over time.
