Red Bordeaux Blend
Producer Notes

Pahlmeyer started over 20 years ago when former trial attorney Jayson Pahlmeyer decided to turn his passion for wine into a career in Napa Valley. After studying viticulture and oenology at the University of Bordeaux, Pahlmeyer returned to the United States and produced his first wine (a Bordeaux blend) in 1986.

Soft and understated. Very Bordeaux-like. Wonder mouth fell and long finish.

Drink Dates 2007-2015

Ripe, big, and structured, this wine's flavors are well delineated and distinct. Lives up to its moniker as "The Mouton of California," showing that state's ripe, luscious fruit within a framework of Old World complexity, structure and earthiness. Its truly unique style (by California standards) is due mainly to the fact that the wine is made from actual Bordeaux clones smuggled into the US many years ago by the proprietor. Upon opening, this was exceptionally dry and its bouquet showed hints of menthol qualities, but 60 minutes of aeration in a large decanter helped the wine unfold and resolve those issues. Drink now through 2015.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
