Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red Bordeaux Red Blend Napa Valley 2018

  • Grape 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc
  • Country USA
  • ABV 15.2 %
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • Blackberry, leather, and Spanish cedar are revealed at the first swirl, complemented by subtle hints of dried sage.
  • Dark and opaque, the concentrated, complex palate brings generous notes of summer cherries, wild blackberries, berry compote, and figs, layered with Mexican chocolate and freshly scraped vanilla bean.
  • Evolving in the glass, characteristics of plum, brown sugar, and spice slowly emerge before a lengthy finish. The best is yet to come for this wine, as its focused intensity and firm, young tannins will age beautifully into sublime texture and fine, velvety tannins.

 

Exquisitely cellar-worthy, our 2018 Proprietary Red Napa Valley will reward patience over the next decade or more. This Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend opens with aromas of wild blackberry, cocoa and supple leather. Deep and beautifully structured, with elegant, lengthy tannins matched by ideal balance. Dark and opaque, the concentrated, complex palate brings generous notes of forest berries and black currant, layered with hints of freshly turned earth, aromatic herbs and dark spices, evolving into a long, energetic finish. Composition 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc Vineyards Pahlmeyer Estate Vineyard, Rancho Chimiles, Stagecoach, Vangone, Upper Range Winemaker: Vinted by Jennifer Williams, blended by Katie Vogt Alcohol: 15.2% Harvested: September 28 to October 30, 2018 Bottled: June 25, 2020 Released: September 13, 2021 Proprietary Red is a masterful blend of Bordeaux varieties, each harvested and vinified separately in dozens of individual lots. In vintage 2018, the majority of the blend was sourced from the iconic Stagecoach Vineyard as well as Upper Range Vineyard, an exciting new addition to our Pahlmeyer vineyard portfolio. Clusters were gravity-fed onto a sorting table and carefully sorted by hand. After the fruit was gently destemmed, it was passed through an optical sorter to ensure that only perfect, gorgeous berries made it into the fermenter. Our top lots were fermented in five-ton oak casks for up to 27 days on the grape skins. At the drain and press stage, free run was collected overnight and the skins were gently pressed via basket press. Each lot was aged and evaluated separately at blending. The wine was aged in 95% new, heavy toast French oak barrels for 18 months.
