  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A mouthful of wine that packs in lots of rich, deep, plush and concentrated flavors, with tiers of currant, blackberry, raspberry and wild berry fruit. Well-integrated tannins smooth out the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,475 cases made.

    Good full medium ruby. Superripe aromas of black fruits, maple syrup, mocha and graphite; at once roasted and vibrant. Supersweet in the mouth, with sappy black fruit and mineral flavors over a firm backbone. Shapelier and a bit less roasted than the 2000, with firm supporting backbone. This is very impressively concentrated California merlot; the fruit spreads out and builds on the very long, firmly tannic back end. I underrated this wine from barrel a year ago.

    The opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 Merlot (1,500 cases) displays a leafy, cool climate bouquet of red currants, chocolate, dried herbs, and forest floor characteristics. It is angular and less generous than the 2000. Its sweet, fruity attack quickly narrows to reveal moderate levels of tannin. Is there enough stuffing to support the tannin? Time will tell. It should age for 10-12 years.

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.
