($90) Good medium ruby. Pretty aromas of red cherry, strawberry and flowers. Supple on entry, then tight in the middle, even slightly hard-edged, with intriguing suggestions of spice and orange rind. Quite closed on the back end and a bit youthfully ungiving today. I would never have guessed this pinot had a pH as high as 3.8, not to mention 15.1% alcohol. From vines planted in 2001 and 2002.

There are 1,600 cases of the 2006 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, a 100% destemmed cuvee made from Dijon clones 667, 828, and 777. It reveals classic Cote de Nuits aromas of damp forest floor, black raspberries, cherries, and spring flowers. With terrific fruit, full body, ripe tannin, and a round, generous, savory mouthfeel already displaying tremendous complexity, it should drink well for 7-8 years. Almost half of the fruit comes from Pahlmeyer's own 24-acre Pinot Noir parcel at his Sonoma Coast vineyard called Wayfarer.

A little over the top for me. Bold and over extractedâ?¦..

My first pinot from Pahlmeyer. Elegant in weight and texture. Long finish with cherry cola like fruit.

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.
