An alluring inky-purple achievement, the 2015 Abstract is replete with a vivid nose of red and black stone fruits, candied cherry, cassis, dried floral notes, and sweet oak accents. Fleshy and spirited, the wine evolves into a very complex flavor profile of dark berry preserve, raspberry jam, Asian spices, mocha, chaparral, and a hint of crushed rock minerality. An underlying acidity leads to a graceful and fine tannin chain that is seemingly endless.

Wine SpectatorPlump and appealingly gamy, with black raspberry, smoky beef and cracked pepper flavors that take on depth toward big but polished tannins.

Wine AdvocateMedium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red Abstract (composed of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache) leaps from the glass with notes of raspberry preserves, kirsch and potpourri with touches rose hips, cinnamon stick and tar. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely plush texture and tons of spicy red fruit, it finishes with a peppery lift. 41,000 cases produced.
