Rich with a juicy texture. Aromas of root beer and candied marasca cherries with subtle notes of cinnamon, vanilla bean and custard. A youthful acidity that brightens the palate with a velvety smooth finish.
93pts James Suckling "This has a perfumed nose of violets, cherries, blueberries, cloves and dried orange. It's medium-bodied with silky, refined tannins. Sleek and concentrated with seamless layers of bright fruit, spice and flowers. Some herb notes, too, on a long, elegant finish. Drink or hold."
92pts Wine Spectator "Pure and minerally, with dried red fruit and berry flavors backed by rich acidity and firm tannins. Delivers an expressive finish accented by delicate rose petal notes."
Pahlmeyer was founded in 1986, by a desire to be great by its eponymous creator Jayson Pahlmeyer. With a dream to create a California Mouton, Jayson and his partners spared no resource to make this dream a reality. Whether it was finding the perfect piece of land high atop Napa Valley’s Atlas Peak or covertly smuggling in Bordeaux cuttings, all pieces of Pahlmeyer’s history have led to its place as one of the top brand names from Napa Valley. From the very beginning, Pahlmeyer has been dedicated to crafting fine wines from the best fruit sources possible. In California, this means high elevation mountain sites, where the grapes are afforded more sunlight, cooler temperatures, and less fertile soils, which together create ideal conditions. Pahlmeyer sources the majority of their fruit from four key locations: Pahlmeyer Estate (Atlas Peak), Stagecoach (Atlas Peak / Pritchard Hill), Rancho Chimiles, and Antica.
