Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($90) Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate and menthol on the aromatic nose. Softer and lusher in style than the comparatively dense and more primary 2004, with flavors of dark raspberry, licorice and dark chocolate. Nicely supple merlot, with harmonious acidity and slightly elevated tannins.

The 2003 Merlot is one of the top three or four Merlots in California. A huge nose of melted chocolate, roasted coffee, black cherry, and charcoal jumps from the glass of this full-bodied, opulent, sexy Merlot. It is a delicious, savory, heady wine to drink over the next 7-8 years.

Wine Spectator | 90

Appealing for its broad display of fruitiness, with cherry cola, cherry candy and black cherry fruit that's well-centered, turning supple at midpalate yet firming up on the finish. 1,439 cases made.

About This Producer


Pahlmeyer started over 20 years ago when former trial attorney Jayson Pahlmeyer decided to turn his passion for wine into a career in Napa Valley. After studying viticulture and oenology at the University of Bordeaux, Pahlmeyer returned to the United States and produced his first wine (a Bordeaux blend) in 1986. Under the guidance of Pahlmyer, and current winemaker Erin Green, this reputation endures, annually establishing the estate as one of the finest producers of Bordeaux blends, Merlot, and Chardonnay in California.
