($110) Deep ruby-red. Sappy, dark aromas of black fruits, pomegranate, licorice and violet, with a suggestion of hard candy. Dense and powerful, with a velvety texture and sound acidity. Not yet complex but the black fruit flavors boast very good sweetness. A bit chunky in style, with chewy tannins and a slight dry edge. But an impressive first pinot release, mostly from Jayson Pahlmeyer's Wayfarer Vineyard.

The newest baby for Green and Pahlmeyer is their Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. The 2005 Pinot Noir is tasting beautifully. There are 1,500 cases of this wine, which has a deep ruby color, a superb nose of raspberries, crushed rocks, and some subtle background oak. It is full-bodied, ripe, generous, with some forest floor-like notes reminiscent of a top red Burgundy. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Smooth, rich and polished, with ripe plum, wild berry and spicy blackberry notes that are elegant and stylish. This is harmonious, long and silky on the finish.

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.
