Pahlmeyer Red 1998
Wine SpectatorDeftly balanced, rich and elegant, with creamy currant, mocha, herb, blackberry and anise flavors, keeping a tight, supple focus and lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2008. 2,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 1998 Proprietary Red is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit-Verdot, and 1% Malbec. A sexy, up-front, plush wine with a deep purple color, medium to full body, and copious quantities of sweet blackberry, creme de cassis, and meaty notes, it is on a fast evolutionary track, and thus should be consumed over the next 10-12 years.
