Winemaker's Notes

"The 2003 Proprietary Red (86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec, aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels) is a killer. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a big, smoky, fragrant nose of creme de cassis, smoked meats, plum, and licorice, it boasts great intensity, rich, full-bodied, powerful flavors, decent acidity, moderate tannin, and tremendous persistence. It has put on weight since I tasted it last year out of barrel, and should drink well for 15 or more years."

I was fortunate enough to visit a close friend of mine in South Carolina during the Master's week this year. We went out to dinner in Greenville and he brought twowines from his private celler for the table to share. After we all ( 3 of us, his wife doesn't drink the grape) finished the first bottle of Turley which pretty great too, he said wait until you see and taste the next one! I could tell the second it was poured out by it's deep purple color, that this was going to be the treat of the Master's trip! I have never tasted a Red wine so full bodied and easy to drink, that I was wishing we had another bottle waiting as back up! It's amazing I had to travel all the way across the U.S. to try this Napa Valley Propietary Red when the Winery is about and hour South West drive from me. I can see why this year has been sold out! Try to get your lips on a glass or better yet a bottle, because you'll definitely want as much of this as possible!

Jayson Pahlmeyer has been producing highly sought-after wines since 1986. It began with Jayson's dream to make world-class Bordeaux-style wine from Napa Valley. Pahlmeyer's estate vineyard - Waters Rance - is situated at 2100 feet in the Atlas Peak appellation of Napa Valley. It is the key source for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Chardonnay. Jayson's passion eventually led him to the Sonoma Coast, where less than seven miles and two ridges from the Pacific Ocean, he planted Wayfarer Farm, their key source for Pinot Noir.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
