100 points - Wine Advocate:  A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2014 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain comes from a cooler site in south Napa, above a quarry. It usually allows for a longer hang time, often lending a minty or herbal lift to the wine. Deep garnet in color, the nose of the 2014 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain opens with intense scents of stewed black cherries, kirsch, blackberry preserves and baked plums with hints of dried Provence herbs, pencil shavings and olives with a waft lavender. The firmly textured, full-bodied palate is built like a brick house, packed with energetic, muscular black fruit and finishing long and vibrant.
