In 2016 the Tesseron family, of Pontet Canet fame in Bordeaux, purchased a vineyard on Mount Veeder. The property had been meticulously supervised by a certain famous Genie, Robin Williams. He did not make wine on the property, but the grapes were beautiful and fed wine programs at some top flight Napa Wineries. With this inaugural vintage the Tesseron family pays homage to Williams by calling the wine after his two children as he called the vineyard Pym Rae.

James Suckling

This is the debut vintage of this wine from the esteemed Bordeaux owner, Alfred Tesseron, who bought the property in the Napa mountains in 2016. Aromas of plums, wet earth, fresh herbs and tobacco. Some green olives. Turns to blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, yet reserved and layered with chocolate, walnuts and plums. Firm yet polished tannins give a framed sense to the wine. Savory. Racy and beautifully structured, it’s extremely drinkable already. Real wine.
