PAHLMEYER PROPRIETARY RED, NAPA VALLEY 2013
A real knock-out, the 2013 Proprietary Red is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. A wine of tension, energy and opulence, the 2013 has all the signatures of the vintage in spades. Red cherry jam, smoke, licorice, spices and white pepper are some of the notes that meld into the super-expressive, delineated finish. The 2013 is the first vintage of the Proprietary Red that is more than 50% estate, while the rest of fruit was sourced from Stagecoach and Rancho Chimiles.
NVWE Notes: The nose of this fruity-spicy-oaky Cabernet is a luxurious perfume: as intense aromas of Cassis, black currant, dark cherry, black plum, red currant, blueberry, mocha, humidor-spice, sandalwood, bay leaf, coriander and cardamon fan-out if an ultra-generous harmony. It is palate-coating, densely concentrated, youthfully gripping and super-long on the palate, where the gorgeous flavors mirror the nose and exquisite balance makes everything wonderfully satisfying already. Likely at least five years from its full greatness, it is also likely the best wine ever made at Pahlmeyer.
