Winemaker Notes

Beginning with its deep purple hue and glints of ruby, this wine is opulent in every sense. Aromas of juicy ripe black cherry and floral raspberry marry with fresh citrus blossom, pencil lead and a hint of marzipan. Smooth, sweet tannins frame the unctuous mouthfeel, dazzling with a balance of rich complexity and fresh acidity. On the palate, notes of ripe black cherry, cassis, mocha and sarsaparilla merge with captivating briny green olive, light ash and orange peel. A crescendo of intense black fruit, bitter chocolate and sweet cigar extend the rhapsody through an endless finish, presenting ample time to savor this extraordinary wine.

JS 96
James Suckling
This, as always, shows lots of ripe and glorious fruit, but it gives tension and liveliness. Full and juicy with so much going on. Delicious and sexy. Drink it or hold.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend (79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot) is fabulous with complex notes of plum, blackcurrants, blueberries, raspberries, licorice and very subtle background oak followed by a full-bodied, opulently textured wine. This has voluptuous texture, tremendous opulence and is a sexy beast. Perfect purity also highlights this marvelous wine that can be drunk now or cellared for 15 more years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Sleek and understated, elegant and slow to unfold, gaining depth and richness along with subtle touches of cedar, gravel, graphite and cigar box. Finishes with detailed flavor nuances and good length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2025.

Pahlmeyer Winery Image
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.
