2019 Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: The Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red presents a stunning tapestry of flavors, expertly crafted from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc. Aromas dance between fruity and earthy, as wild blueberry, black plum, cassis, saddle leather, and cedar intermingle. On the palate, this opulent wine delights with layers of crushed ripe blackberry and castelvetrano olive. Fine-grained tannins provide a generous frame for the focused fruit core, with a lingering finish echoing earth and spice.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Mainly off the estate vineyard and mainly Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Pahlmeyer's 2019 Proprietary Red spent 18 months in almost all new French oak. Gentle herbal notes accent cherry and cassis on the nose of this full-bodied wine, which manages to be rich and velvety without ever being heavy. Waves of ripe fruit, cedary oak and savory loam linger on the long, elegant finish. This should drink well for up to two decades."
