International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

(includes 11% cabernet sauvignon) Full ruby-red. Black raspberry, licorice, truffle, shoe polish and a note of black olive on the nose. Sweet, lush and plump, with expressive flavors of black plum syrup, dark chocolate, mocha and truffle. This boasts a solid middle ("the addition of some cabernet adds weight and fills out the palate," notes winemaker Green) to support its substantial ripe tannins. Finishes with dark fruits and earth. This has turned out very well.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

Pahlmeyer's Merlot was the uncontested top California Merlot for many years, but significant competition has emerged from the upstart Kapcsandy Estate in Yountville. However, Pahlmeyer's offering remains one of the classic examples of just how great Merlot can be in Napa. The 2006 Merlot (89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits sweet chocolate, mocha, cola, black cherry, and plum aromas and flavors as well as full body, a sumptuous, dense texture, and no hard edges. The beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, and wood result in a hedonistic, mouthfilling, luscious Merlot to consume over the next 10-15 years.

Color: Deep garnet, with crimson edges. Nose: Plum, black fruits, dusty cocoa and allspice. Palate: Big, bright wine, beautifully smooth tannins, black cherry and black berries. Very nice round mouth feel with soft edges. The wine envelopes your palate, but it is not jammy. This is a well balanced, well integrated wine, with a touch of acidity. The finish is long.
