Gemstone Proprietary Red 2006, 750mL (WA93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Gemstone Proprietary Red

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Yountville, Napa

WA93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The superb 2006 Gemstone Proprietary Red? (an 890-case blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot) is from the cooler Oakville / Yountville sector of Napa. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of subtle new oak interwoven with black currants, smoke, licorice, and a hint of spring flowers. The wine is full-bodied, with excellent density, admirable balance, and fine purity, a hallmark of this estate. It should drink nicely for two decades.`Proprietors Suzie and Paul Frank sold this vineyard to Carol and Michael Marks, but I do not expect many changes as Philippe Melka remains in charge of the winemaking. Gemstone`s 17-acre vineyard is the fruit source for these two cuvees, the Facets and the flagship wine, Gemstone Proprietary Red.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
