Pahlmeyer 2013 Proprietary Red, Napa Valley


96 Points Parker                           
The finest Proprietary Red Pahlmeyer has ever produced!  Cellar Selection.

96 Points Robert Parker:  "An absolute stunner is the 2013 Proprietary Red Wine, a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Malbec and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is all mountain fruit from primarily the Stagecoach Vineyard and another site in Rancho Chimiles. Beautiful floral, smoky, blackcurrant notes mixed with acacia flowers and forest floor jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, concentrated and age-worthy wine. Like most 2013s, this is a 30-year wine with remarkable concentration, color and fruit extract. Forget it for another 3-4 years, and drink it over the following 30+ years."                                               
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.
