The finest Proprietary Red Pahlmeyer has ever produced! Cellar Selection. 95 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend (15.2% alcohol) shows gorgeously sweet tannins that involve a voluptuously textured, full-bodied, stunningly rich wine with loads of blue, black and red fruits. It has the full fruit spectrum, terrific aromatics and a real opulence and richness. The freshness of the 2013 might even eclipse that of 2012, so this could be a 20-year wine in the making...Some new cuvées seem to have entered Pahlmeyer’s portfolio. I guess making two world-class red wines, their Merlot and Proprietary Red was just not enough of a challenge for Jayson Pahlmeyer!" 95 Points Antonio Galloni: "Blackberry jam, spices, cloves, menthol and licorice are some of the notes that meld together in the 2013 Proprietary Red. Expressive, layered and silky, the 2013 shows the more refined side of the vintage while maintaining considerable power and plenty of structure. Crushed rocks, lavender and blueberry jam meld into a finish that is both explosive and pliant." One of California’s super-star producers, Pahlmeyer’s wines have a fabulous track record of aging well. This estate was one of Helen Turley’s first clients, and since she departed one of her assistants, Erin Green, has continued to turn out sumptuous reds as well as exquisite Chardonnays.
