Pahlmeyer Red 2000
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Proprietary Red is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Its dense purple color is followed by a sweet bouquet of blackberries, cassis, and smoky new oak, medium body, a ripe attack, and a narrow finish. This wine is excellent for the vintage, but it is blown away by its 2001 and 2002 counterparts.
