(82% cabernet sauvignon with 9% merlot, 6% cabernet franc, 2% petit verdot and 1% malbec): Good ruby-red. Much more vibrant on the nose than the merlot, offering scents of blackberry, flowers, graphite and licorice. Dense but juicy, conveying lovely intensity without weight. A bit youthfully aggressive today but boasts sound acidity and good salty extract. Still a tad tight and dry on the back end, but finishes with sneaky rising length.

Mocha, espresso, cloves and blackberry jam are some of many nuances that emerge from the 2010 Red Blend. A deep, rich wine, the 2010 boasts stunning aromatics, beautifully chiseled fruit and fabulous overall balance. I sense a slightly less sweet, overt style than in previous years, yet at the same time, there is plenty of richness in the glass. I suspect the 2010 will still be going strong at age 20. Today, it is flat-out gorgeous. The 2010 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Big, bold and expressive, featuring ripe, juicy plum and wild berry flavors, with touches of spice and cedar. Impressively supple, with a finish gripped by graceful and refined tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

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.
