2005 Pahlmeyer - Red Bordeaux Blend - USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley - Red

USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley

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.

Issue Issue 138

($125; 84% cabernet sauvignon with 10% merlot, 4% cab franc and 1% each petit verdot and malbec) Good saturated red-ruby. Pungent aromas of cassis and violet, with a whiff of smoked meat. Densely packed, layered and thick; a step up in depth from the merlot. This boasts a chocolatey richness to its sweet dark fruit flavors. Finishes supple, lush, broad and long, with substantial sweet tannins and a lingering note of chocolate.

The 2005 Proprietary Red is significantly better than what I tasted last year, although I certainly gave it a high score. This wine has fleshed out beautifully. The final blend (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec) has a deep purple color, a beautifully sweet nose of blackberries and cassis intermixed with some meatiness, smoke, and a touch of pain grille as well as notes of espresso and licorice. Full-bodied, rich, with decent acidity, excellent delineation, and moderately high tannin, this is a beauty that should evolve for 25-30+ years It is no wimpish wine at 15.2% natural alcohol, but that is buried beneath a cascade of gorgeous fruit and glycerin. This wine should be cruising along brilliantly in 2030+.

Ripe, rich and complex, with layers of black cherry, wild berry, currant and cherry kirsch flavors that are bold, rich and persistent, ending with a long, intense yet elegant aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

This was great juice. Nose was blackberry and gravel and a little muskiness. Flavor was lingering, deep and rich. Not over the top but big and satisfying. Excellent finish. This was a very enjoyable bottle and it is drinking well right now.

Less generous than expected but well built. I can see this gaining more complexity, sosit these on their sides for few more years. Must decant 3 hours. Color: dark core with vibrant red edges Nose: tight but showed currant, cherry, meat, and mineralogy Palate: tight but well made, shy flavors similar to the aromas unfolded, tight and firm tannins

A refined beautiful wine. Let sit out for 3 hours in the decanter. Full fruit nose with hints of earth. Spicy currants and blackberry with a smooth elegant finish.

$150. Med-dark red color. Nice nose, sweet light fruit, berry, earthy, captures your attention. Good mouthfeel, med tannin, grips a little too much, pleasant but nothing special. Finish is med to short and ok at best, leaves you wanting more (but in a bad way). Wine did get better after a few glasses and with time but not enough to warrant a purchase for price.

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.
