Made of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Malbec and aged for ten months in 40% new French oak, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Proprietary Red Machete sings of crushed black raspberries and warm blackberries with hints of bay leaves, tilled soil and garrigue. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it has a lively line and tons of evocative black fruit and sautéed herbs layers, finishing long and earthy. —by Lisa Perotti Brown
