Always well above the waterline. Needs time. Lacking the depth and complexity that I’ve come to expect from this winery. Still very strong, but with time, I’m hoping it’s gonna step up into a heavier weight class. Mixing metaphors, but you get the point.

Too young resulting in a disappointment relative to expectations. This vintage should be stored for a decade. Fruit bomb in the nose with stewed prunes/plums and heated blackberries. The palate falls a bit short and not well balanced, again I attribute this to the youthful nature of this vintage.

"Red wine" listed on label. Not sure of varietal breakdown. Regardless, delicious, firm, juicy.

Awful late dinner, 8 bottles in mistake. Not Pahlmeyer's fault. This was like beating a baby seal and complaining that it tasted rubbery. So so young, massive and unyielding. Tasted like the '17 vintage. Can't rate but hold this fucker and don't wake it until it's done sleeping.

Drinking beautifully decanted 1 1/2 + hours, before dinner. Paired well with the meal as we sailed out of St. Petersburg, Russia at sunset.
