    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1994 Pahlmeyer Red Wine possesses an opaque black color with an intense nose of earth, black fruits, vanilla and spice. Full-bodied and concentrated with moderate but soft, ripe tannins.

    Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2.7% Malbec, 1.3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    The proprietary red wine made by Pahlmeyer is usually a blend of 75%-80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and a tiny quantity of Malbec. The 1994 Proprietary Red Wine exhibits a purple/black color, as well as sweet, integrated tannin, a gorgeous blackcurrant, toast, tar, and licorice-scented nose, fabulous texture, and a 35-45 second finish. The 1994 may be slightly sweeter in the mid-palate than the 1995, but the differences are negligible. The abundant tannin is mostly concealed by the wine's wealth of fruit, glycerin, and alcohol. This wine should drink well from the late nineties through the first two decades of the next century. Very impressive!

    The Wine Advocate

    Ripe, complex and full-bodied, with pretty currant, black cherry, spice and cedary oak flavors that continue to develop far into the finish. The tannins are a little rough around the edges, but they're not out of line for a wine this young.
