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.

Dense, dark core with red, ever slightly browning rim. Extracted. Dark cab flavors. Bacon, almost meaty smells. Old leather. Does not appear to be near peak of maturity. 5-10 years would probably be good. Tannins still present. Interesting, savory smell. With time, cedar emerges. But too sweet to be st. Julien. Inky.

Taut and focused with good fruit and round mouthfeel. Tannins have mellowed. This is drinking well now. Solid napa Bordeaux blend but I'd skip the 2001 and go for 2005s, which are about the same price and totally outshine the 2001. Quite enjoyable overall - good but not extraordinary.

I was expecting great things (especially in light of how well the 2001 Jayson performs) from this wine but it did not deliver. Pahlmeyer continues to do seemingly everything right but there is no question in my mind that it underperformed in Napa Valley?s superlative 2001 vintage. The 2001 Red Table is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec that was whole berry fermented on indigenous yeasts. They raised the wine in 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months before bottling it unfined and unfiltered. Very darkly colored opaque wine with scents of muted cherry, heat, light chocolate, and (shockingly) a touch of herbaceousness. Telltale Pahlmeyer sweet fruit in the mouth that finishes with lots of chocolate brownie flavor. Tannins start smooth but are persistent and end with excessive chalkiness. Low acidity.

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.
