Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2010 Pinot Noir is surprisingly juicy for the vintage. Black cherries, spices and flowers burst from the glass in this deep, expressive Pinot. The wine reveals gorgeous depth and purity all the way through to the resonant finish. Winemaker Erin Green gave the Pinot 15 months in French oak barrels (67% new). The Pinot was neither fined nor filtered.

Medium red. Pungent, musky aromas of raspberry, red licorice, mint and spices. Juicy and savory on the palate, with a minty streak and intriguing soil notes to the strawberry and raspberry flavors. Conveys an almost salty impression and finishes with a distinct spearmint note. Will this youthfully edgy wine expand with a couple years of bottle age?

A mix of upper and medium register red berry fruit aromas displays top notes of cranberry and spice hints. There is fine concentration on the opulent and relatively big-bodied flavors that possess a lush, even succulent mouth feel before culminating in a somewhat drying finish as the acidity is not entirely well-integrated. Still there is less warmth than one might expect and overall, this will please those who enjoy full-on pinots. Moreover while it should reward a few years of bottle age, the flavors are so generous that this could easily be enjoyed now.

Upon opening the bottle the nose is of fresh strawberry's just picked from the vine, with a slight hint of lilac. In the month it is light crisp and bring thoughts of strawberry, cherry, and raspberry. The tanning are light and balanced.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
