Jayson Pahlmeyer's eponymous wine is now regarded as one of the blue chip brands of the Napa Valley. How did he do it? Jayson began by wanting to create his own California rendition of Bordeaux's first growth Mouton Rothschild. He seeks out the best vineyards in Napa Valley, hires the best winemakers and cuts zero corners to ensure only the best wine made goes into this blend. Current winemaker Kale Anderson blends Cabernet Sauvignon with small parts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot from the Pahlmeyer Estate, Stagecoach, Upper Range, and Vangone!.

JEB DUNNUCK 97+ POINTS - "The 2018 Red Blend Proprietary Red could easily be mistaken for a great vintage from Chateau Latour, at least aromatically. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, lead pencil shavings, and a gorgeous sense of minerality all develop in the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, concentrated mouthfeel, building tannins (and plenty of them), and a great finish. This brilliant, world-class Cabernet is going to benefit from 4-5 years or more of bottle age and have 30+ years of longevity. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc, all brought up in 95% new French oak. 2,668 cases."

ANTONIO GALLONI 97 POINTS - "The 2018 Proprietary Red is every bit as magnificent as it was from barrel, if not moreso. It's just a great expression of the year. Rich and explosive, with tremendous depth, the 2018 possesses tremendous richness right out of the gate. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and spice soar out of the glass. The 2018 Proprietary Red is, sadly, the only wine Pahlmeyer will bottle in 2018, as fires were an issue at the estate vineyard on Atlas Peak."
