Pahlmeyer Red 2011

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

With its brooding dark purple color, we characterize the 2011 Proprietary Red as a Bordeaux-lover's vintage: silky, smooth and complex, with a striking balance of power and natural acidity. Captivating flavors of rich black cherry, ripe raspberry, and vivid orange peel deepen into fragrant earth, aged leather, sweet rosemary and Dutch cocoa. The enduring finish is silky, with fine-grained tannins and layered ribbons of espresso and slate.

Wine AdvocateThe dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 Proprietary Red is, as usual, a blend of five grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. It exhibits Pahlmeyer's tell-tale suppleness as well as a sexy, upfront display of ripe fruit, flowers, black currants, cherries and a hint of espresso. It is not the biggest or richest blend made, but it is well put together with no hint of herbaceousness. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years.
