2016 - 2031
Robert M. Parker, Jr.
The 2014 Proprietary Red Coach Gun is a Bordeaux blend of 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Malbec and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It is a big, whopping wine that I was shocked to see at 15.8% alcohol, as it is not the least bit hot or heavy. Loads of forest floor, dark raspberry, white chocolate and blacker fruits are soft and supple, along with silky tannin and low acidity. This is irresistible already and should continue to drink nicely for 12-15+ years.
This under-the-radar producer makes good wines at generally moderate pricing.
