Pahlmeyer Red Blend 2016
This wine has a deep garnet rim with a dark burgundy-hued core. A nose of sweet vanilla, cigar and blackberry carries over onto the soft, voluptuous palate. Ripe fruit flavors are accented with notes of licorice, graphite slate and unsweetened chocolatepowder, while hints of dark roasted coffee show up on the very edges of the tongue.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.
"Fantastic aromatics with blackberries, blackcurrants and iodine. Licorice, too. Medium to fulll body, fine and velvety tannins and a very polished and gorgeous finish. Caressing and dialed in. Why wait? An intellectual wine here. Lovely now."- James Suckling
