Full throttle Cabernet - big, dense, powerful.

In the immortal words of Hot Chocolate, "I believe in miracles, since you came along, you sexy thing." Pahlmeyer's 2012 Proprietary Blend is all that and more, delivering dense, hovering aromatics of smokey blueberry, sweet tobacco, sooty ash and vanilla bean. It's equally hedonistic in the mouth, a Bordeaux-style blend that is both glossy and luminous. Dense cream and blackberry notes build in intensity until at last, it reaches a finish that picks up trace elements of minerality and dried herbs. Sample

A bit angular. Surprising. I'd lay this one down for a few years. But my palate sucks today, a little sick. Really silky as it opens up.

Deep and seductive. So ready right out of the bottle with loads of chocolate and black cherry and no rough edges whatsoever. Could she for a couple decades but why wait.

Big bad boy. Elements all in harmony. Could drink the shit out of this now. But will grow into a beautiful butterfly. Save the 2012 and drink an '05 now!
