Rich, slightly medicinal aromas of brambly blackberry, plum, menthol and chocolate. Broad and fine-grained, with herbs and a leafy element keeping the mid-palate quite dry. In a closed stage today, with the herbal and leafy notes accentuated by dusty tannins. I wanted a bit more freshness and depth of fruit.

The 2009 Merlot is a soft, fragrant offering with excellent complexity in its sweet red berries, flowers and spices. This delicate, feminine Merlot is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit remains vibrant.

Plush and richly structured, but with a dense, structured core, offering aromas of red currant and toasty mocha that lead to complex flavors of black cherry and Asian spice. Loamy, ripe tannins sneak in 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.
