Pahlmeyer is renowned for its rich Napa-Bordeaux inspired reds under the leadership of the exuberant Jayson Pahlmeyer and winemaker Helen Turley, and the rarely found 2013 vintage of the Raison d’Etre was rated a near perfect 99 points by Robert Parker

"...power, massive extract, richness, length and profound aromatics and flavors, as this is just a prodigious wine. Perhaps the dosage of Merlot gives this more chocolate and espresso than the Pièce De Résistance, but it is a stunningly big, thick, juicy wine that somehow maintains balance and delineation.

"Pahlmeyer certainly has one of the most consistently superb resumés for the last 30 years that any winery could desire."
Robert Parker
