" A barrel selection of the best of the vintage, this year coming from Vine Hill Ranch and To Kalon, the 2018 Proprietary Red Black Magic has a proportion of the Cabernet Sauvignon co-fermented with Petit Verdot, blended with a splash of Cabernet Franc. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a fair bit of coaxing before rolling seductively out of the glass with scents of crème de cassis, baked plums and boysenberries plus nuances of tar, licorice, Indian spices and unsmoked cigars with a waft of pencil lead. This is big, rich and full-bodied, while the palate is powerful and has bags of energy, delivering impressive tension and firm, grainy tannins, finishing with fantastic length and many, many layers. It's an absolute Napa Cab powerhouse that should easily cellar for 40 years or more."
