About Pahlmeyer 2017 Proprietary Red, Napa Valley

Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red is one of Napa Valley's most iconic wines that continually receives rave reviews and accolades. This 2017 is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc sourced from the vineyards Pahlmeyer Estate, Upper Range, Stagecoach and Rancho Chimiles. The grapes were all triaged and selected by hand at the winery. The fruit underwent several days of cold maceration and two to six weeks of primary fermentation before gentle basket press. The wine then aged in 100% new French Oak barrels for 22 months.

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 94+ points saying "The 2017 Proprietary Red is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 13% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, all aged in roughly 90% new French oak. This rich, full-bodied, structured wine has lots of tannin and concentration yet stays beautifully balanced, with ample currants, graphite, truffle, loamy earth, and toasted spice-like aromas and flavors. It’s a terrific 2017 that will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years."
