Jayson Pahlmeyer has been producing highly sought-after wines since the 1986. Some of Napa's greatest winemakers have worked at Pahlmeyer over the years starting with Randy Dunn.
The 2016 Proprietary Red is another superb wine from Pahlmeyer. Silky, supple and quite structured. Medium-bodied and fantastically intense in the mouth with super velvety tannins and balaced acidity. Flavors of crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco, leather, licorice, blueberry, boysenberry, plum, and dark roasted coffee lead the way to a juicy finish. Savor this one on its own or with leg of lamb.
