Pahlmeyer's proprietary red table wine tends to be Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated (usually 80-85%) with small portions of Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The 1995 Proprietary Red Wine may be even better than the 96 point score I bestowed it. It is unquestionably among the top dozen 1995s. The wine boasts an explosive blackberry/blueberry/cassis-scented nose that has completely soaked up all the new oak in which it has been aged for the last 22 months. Purple/black in color, it exhibits fabulously extracted, layered black fruit flavors that coat the palate, offering a seamless texture and voluptuous impression.

Excellent structure, with a medley of complex currant, mineral and a pleasant claylike earthiness that folds in, giving it a rich, mouthcoating finish. Intense and concentrated, it's ready now and should be decanted one hour before drinking. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. 2,500 cases made.

Excellent example of mid-90's Napa Valley. Still a big wine, but beautifully balanced with earthy, cedar, elegant flavors. Plenty of life left. Delicious!

Very balanced and Bordeaux-like; improved in the glass. Good fruit, moderately long finish, plenty of time left

About This Producer


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. Under the guidance of Pahlmyer, and current winemaker Erin Green, this reputation endures, annually establishing the estate as one of the finest producers of Bordeaux blends, Merlot, and Chardonnay in California.
