Blankiet Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard 2006,  (WA95+, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Blankiet Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA95+, ST95
Rated 95+ points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The real star is the nearly 1,000 case-lot of the Paradise Hills Vineyard Proprietary Red. The dense, opaque plum/purple-hued 2006 Paradise Hills Vineyard exhibits a beautiful, sweet bouquet of melted chocolate, burning embers, blackberries, mocha, espresso roast, cassis, and cherries as well as stunning concentration, and formidable, but velvety, beautifully integrated tannins. This wine comes across like a hypothetical blend of California, a great Graves, and something from further north in Bordeaux, such as a Pauillac. Full-bodied and powerful, it requires 2-4 years of cellaring, and should evolve for 20-25+ years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This sensational estate is situated on the hillside behind Dominus` large Napanook Vineyard. Created by Claude and Katherine Blankiet in the mid-nineties, I have liked these wines since their debut vintage. They now have 16 acres under vine, and the winemaking is overseen by super-star viticulturists David Abreu and Martha McClellan-Levy as well as consultant Michel Rolland. Their secondary label, called Rive Droite, uses a large portion of their Merlot crop, and the flagship offering, the Paradise Hills Vineyard Proprietary Red is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon.`
