More Vintages and Sizes of Pahlmeyer - Red:
Author: Robert Parker
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
