97 Points Parker The finest Proprietary Red Pahlmeyer has ever produced! Cellar Selection. 97 points Robert Parker: "The proprietary red wine blend has always been dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but it includes other Bordeaux varieties as well. It is kept 22-24 months in 100% new oak. The 2015 Proprietary Red Wine, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, has super concentration, a massive mouthfeel, heady, intense flavors of black and blue fruits, chocolate, wood spice and barbecue notes. It is a killer effort and, as so many of the 2015s, another magnificent vintage for Northern California...Pahlmeyer certainly has one of the most consistently superb resumés for the last 30 years that any winery could desire." 97 Points James Suckling 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.
Big, tobacco leaf nose leads a full and layered smooth cocoa palate. This needs time but will go from great to outstanding.
