2001 Proprietary Red
Vineyard Designation: Waters Ranch, Rancho Chimiles, Thorevilos
Composition: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Winemaking Notes: Harvested by the end of October from hand picked lots, the whole berries were fermented in short open-topped stainless steel tanks, cold soaked and using native yeasts. The wine then continued through malolactic fermentation in 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months and was bottled neither fined nor filtered.
Availability: The Pahlmeyer 2001 Proprietary Red will be available October 1, 2004 either directly from the winery, or through our network of fine restaurants and retail merchants around the world.
