2016 is the first vintage of Pym-Rae, Alfred Tesseron’s (Pontet-Canet) new project up on Mount Veeder. Sourced from the namesake property formerly owned by Robin Williams, it is crafted by the same team that has revolutionized their Fifth Growth estate into a First Growth rival in Pauillac.

    This is the debut vintage of this wine from the esteemed Bordeaux owner, Alfred Tesseron, who bought the property in the Napa mountains in 2016. Aromas of plums, wet earth, fresh herbs and tobacco. Some green olives. Turns to blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, yet reserved and layered with chocolate, walnuts and plums. Firm yet polished tannins give a framed sense to the wine. Savory. Racy and beautifully structured, it’s extremely drinkable already ” (1/2020)

  • 97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    The 2016 Pym-Rae displays a deep garnet-purple color and reveals wonderfully fragrant notes of candied violets, roses, and black tea over a core of red and black currants, black cherries and warm blackberries. 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.
