From Alfred Tesseron’s (owner of Pontet Canet in Pauillac) estate on Mount Veeder, the 2019 Pym Rae is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc. (correctie: 80% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc, 5% merlot, Colaris) Deep purple-black colored, it requires a fair bit of swirling before it charges out of the gate with bold notes of crème de cassis, black cherry compote, and blueberry pie, followed by suggestions of clove oil, lilacs, licorice, and tar, plus a spicy waft of cumin seed. The full-bodied palate delivers beguiling energy from the brightness of fruit, bursting with fragrant floral notes, minerally sparks, and exotic spices. It has a taut backbone of invigorating acidity, matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins, supporting the epic long, multi-layered finish. This 2019 is the vinous definition of opulence. This is the first vintage certified organic and biodynamic. Only about 20,000 bottles were made and are due to be released in autumn 2023.

The 2019 Château Pym-Rae is a textbook Mount Veeder Cabernet with its exotic red, blue, and black fruits as well as complex notes of mountain scrub brush, lavender, tobacco, and lead pencil. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, it has a layered, elegant mouthfeel, ultra-fine yet substantial tannins, and a great finish. It's one of those "iron fist in a velvet glove" type wines that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and shine over the following two decades.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon; 15% Cabernet Franc; 5% Merlot; the vineyard is at an altitude of around 550 metres; 15% alcohol; certified organic and biodynamic). The fourth vintage of this wine and the first to be certified both organic and biodynamic. This is also, impressively, the product of dry farming, showing that it is possible even here. This is radiantly beautiful, incredibly elegant and profoundly floral on the nose. It seems delicate yet at the same time is intense and thoroughly captivating aromatically. In its earlier vintages the minerality seemed to dominate, drowning out the florality. We now a glorious equilibrium with all the notes in subtle harmony. Cherry and confit cherry, peonies and rose petals, candlewax and a touch of cedar. The tannins are sublimely soft, yet the grip and chisel the wine through the glacial and crystal pure mid-palate. The most exquisite expression of Napa Cabernet. So juicy on the finish and such an excellent advert for viticulture practiced here.

Extremely aromatic with flowers, currants, plums, and cocoa. Full-bodied with compacted fruit and ultra-fine tannins giving it a suppleness and finesse, yet it’s very structured and long. Turns to sandalwood, hazelnut and subtle currants. Round and velvety texture at the end. Slightly deeper and denser. 55% new French barrels and 45% concrete eggs for 18 months. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc and 5% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Needs four or five years. An excellent mountain wine from the family owners of Pontet Canet.

This is the first release of the 2019 vintage, a little later than many in Napa, reflecting this unusual site which gives concentration and structure in spades. Even at four years old this is just beginning to soften, and I recommend a long carafe if approaching soon (it was even better 24 hours after opening for example). Easily the best vintage that they have released since the inaugural 2016, capturing the general freshness and balance of 2019 Napa, and an increasing confidence with these mountain tannins at this stunning Mount Veeder property. This is beautifully fragrant, vivid with anis, fennel, sage, blueberry and cassis fruits, eucalyptus and mint leaf. Muscular, as is always the case with Pym-Rae, with more contrast and light than the supremely powerful 2018. This is definitely a wine that you can put away for a good few decades. Great job Jerome Ledit, the 'winemaker, vineyard manager, cowboy' as they describe him. First vintage to be certified organic and biodynamic. Vinified in concrete tanks, with ageing between concrete (40%), and the rest in French new oak barrels. Michel Rolland and Julien Viaud consultants.
