Mocha espresso cloves and blackberry jam are some of many nuances that emerge from the 2010 Red Blend. A deep rich wine the 2010 boasts stunning aromatics beautifully chiseled fruit and fabulous overall balance. I sense a slightly less sweet overt style than in previous years yet at the same time there is plenty of richness in the glass. I suspect the 2010 will still be going strong at age 20. Today it is flat-out gorgeous. The 2010 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Merlot 6% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.95+ -Antonio Galloni

Rich, layered and explosive, the 2010 boasts gorgeous depth and poise. Sweet grilled herbs, tobacco and new leather flow through to the intense, textured finish. Ideally, the 2010 is best left alone for another few years. The super-ripe, racy finish is a bit uncharacteristic for the year, but it is nicely balanced by the 2010 tannins. This is another terrific showing from Pahlmeyer.

Good ruby-red. Much more vibrant on the nose than the merlot, offering scents of blackberry, flowers, graphite and licorice. Dense but juicy, conveying lovely intensity without weight. A bit youthfully aggressive today... Good ruby-red. Much more vibrant on the nose than the merlot, offering scents of blackberry, flowers, graphite and licorice. Dense but juicy, conveying lovely intensity without weight. A bit youthfully aggressive today but boasts sound acidity and good salty extract. Still a tad tight and dry on the back end, but finishes with sneaky rising length. 91+
