Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($70; mostly from estate fruit) Good medium yellow. Fresh pineapple and peach on the nose, along with a more tropical quality and a floral element; fruitier than the Sonoma Coast bottling. Chewy, supple and dense, with a slightly phenolic aggressiveness to the somewhat saline flavors of white plum and pineapple. A bit less suave and energetic than the Sonoma Coast bottling, finishing with an almost tannic impression. (I was unable to taste the 2008 pinot noir, as it had just been bottled.)

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.
