The 2017 Mr. Evans Proprietary Red immediately offers its signature, exhilarating bouquet of vibrant red and black fruit. Yet in 2017, the iconic Roy Estate blend also presents a captivating savory quality evoking forest floor and black truffles. On the palate, the wine’s structure is an homage to classic Bordeaux—firm, textural and layered. It quickly builds an intense, dark core of blackberry, blueberry and creme de cassis. The notable acidity in the 2017 vintage makes this full-bodied wine exceptionally balanced with a lingering, lively finish.
This is an energetic, powerful wine tempered by graceful tannins and its time spent in 100% new French oak barrels. It drinks beautifully now and will improve through 2035 and beyond.
Lively on the palate, it offers dense raspberry, blueberry and blackcurrant framed by vibrant acidity and persistent layers of firm tannins. The defining freshness of the 2017 vintage is exquisitely preserved here while also demonstrating substantial power. Nowhere is this more evident than in the wine’s lingering finish that recalls freshly roasted coffee beans and cocoa. The wine delivers great pleasure today owing to its expressiveness, but will develop for 15-20 years.
This 2014 Proprietary Red is an intensely aromatic wine with loads of dark fruit, blueberry, raspberry jam, blackberry and black cherry. The mouth is extremely elegant, yet round and voluptuous with notes of currant, cherries, spice box, camphor and scorched earth. This dense wine has purity with its supple tannins creating that signature Roy finish that lingers. Enjoy how it develops and evolves as it opens in your glass.
