Winemaker Notes

This wine has a deep garnet rim with a dark burgundy-hued core. A nose of sweet vanilla, cigar and blackberry carry over onto the soft, voluptuous palate. Ripe fruit flavors are accented with notes of licorice, graphite slate, and unsweetened chocolate powder, while hints of dark roasted coffee show up on the very edges of the tongue.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
Fantastic aromatics with blackberries, blackcurrants and iodine. Licorice, too. Medium to fulll body, fine and velvety tannins and a very polished and gorgeous finish. Caressing and dialed in. Why wait? An intellectual wine here. Lovely now.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A remarkable effort, engagingly rich and concentrated, with a deep, firm mix of licorice-shaded blackberry, currant, graphite, dried herb and cedary oak notes. The flavors hold and gain, leading to a persistent finish that keeps echoing the core elements. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, again, showing slightly less depth than its two surrounding siblings, but beautiful pure fruit, silky, velvety tannins, a layered mouthfeel and deep blackcurrant and black cherry fruit intermixed with cedar wood, fruitcake and smoky oak. This is a terrific wine as well and it will be the fastest out of the gate in terms of evolution – drinking beautifully for the next 15+ years.
D 94
Decanter
The juicy black cherry nose is wrapped in smoke, and that same generous, luscious ripeness fills the mouth and rolls its heady richness around your senses. Alcoholic heat tingles at the edges, while cinnamon notions glisten. This is bold, rich, layered and muscular. Worth waiting for. Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The Pahlmeyer Proprietor Red—a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with bits of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot—is bold and ripe. The wine's full concentration makes a wine that would stand up nicely with a very old cheddar. (Tasted: October 30, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

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.

Napa Valley

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
