Matt’s review: Deep ruby red with dark core, the sun-drenched Sonoma County fruit in this red blend has produced a big, opulent, yet fresh style of wine that’s perfectly suited for enjoying at the table or fireside with good company. A unique blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, and Cabernet, that showcases not only the diversity of these different varietals, but the complexity that’s achieved when they’re assembled together. Dark berries, fresh baked raspberry scones, eucalyptus, and smoky bacon on the nose. Its velvety smooth texture shows a great balance of refreshing dark fruit and integrated soft tannins, with smoky dark cherries persisting on the finish. This big Sonoma red has not only the finesse and elegance of an Angel but the power and grit of a Cowboy.  Summer BBQ fare including charcoal grilled beef are top of my list to enjoy with Proprietary Red.

PS: If you’re able to attend one of the California Wine Fairs across Canada this spring, make sure you taste the Angels & Cowboys and Cannonball Wine Co. wines they’re pouring.  Highly likely that you’ll be very impressed.
