  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 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.)

    Smooth and rich, with tiers of smoky, toasty oak, ripe fig, melon, honeysuckle, roasted marshmallow and hazelnut. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, offering a long, persistent finish that keeps gaining depth.

    The 2008 Chardonnay is one of the finest Chardonnays of the vintage. Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle, brioche, white peaches, orange marmalade, and citrus blossoms soar from the glass of this light gold/green-hued wine. A terrific texture, full-bodied mouthfeel, and hints of hazelnuts as well as honey give this cuvee lots of flesh, depth, and richness. It should drink well for 5-8+ 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.
