2010 Proprietary Red Wine, Sugarloaf Mountain, Napa Valley, Oscar
“Oscar”, our 2010 Proprietary Red Wine, is a freak show of a wine. The initial impression is one of power and grace. It’s massive and complex, but with a little air it gains a refinement that few large scaled wines ever have. The Cabernet Franc gives it a floral quality, but with time the espresso bean and vanilla scents grow and grow. The color is almost black. For the last two vintages our Proprietary Reds (Danger D and The Whitney) have been our most re-ordered wines, and I know that this year will be no exception.
