2013 Pahlmeyer Winery Proprietary Red Napa Valley
Crafted from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot, this is Napa's answer to Mouton-Rothschild: truffly, intense, and black fruited. Parker loved its gorgeously sweet tannins that involve a voluptuously textured, full-bodied, stunningly rich wine with loads of blue, black and red fruits. It has the full fruit spectrum, terrific aromatics and a real opulence and richness. The freshness of the 2013 might even eclipse that of 2012, so this could be a 20-year wine in the making.""
