• Domaine: Pym-Rae, Tesseron Estate
• Appellation: Mount Veeder, Napa, California
• Grape Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the inaugural vintage of Pym-Rae under the new ownership of Tesseon Estate. Formerly the wine estate of the late Robin Williams who named the wine after combining the middle names of his son and daughter, Pym-Rae is now the California crown jewel of Bordeaux's Tessron family who produces Château Pontet-Canet. The Tessrons decided to keep the wine's name to honor the legacy of the late actor, whose friendship with actor of Superman - Christopher Reeve - gave birth to the logo of the Daily Planet which is prominently featured on the label.
Available in collector's case of 3 bottles, by request
"A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Pym-Rae displays a deep garnet-purple color and reveals wonderfully fragrant notes of candied violets, wilted roses, damp soil and black tea over a core of red and black currants, black cherries and warm blackberries plus touches of cigar box and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is evocatively singular, offering that rock-solid structure of mountain fruit, yet these are wonderfully ripe, silt-like tannins that beautifully support the elegant red and black fruit layers, finishing very long and very perfumed." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (10/29/2018), Ratings: 97, Drink: 2020-2048
