2008Pahlmeyer Merlot

Sold Out

Merlot-California-Napa Valley

Deep purple in color the Merlot offers olallieberry and freshly baked gingerbread on the nose. Plush tannins overlay a well formed structure while flavors of roasted herbs and concentrated mountain grown blackberries blend together seamlessly. The weighty palate hints that this wine will continue to evolve beautifully with proper cellaring. The finish features lingering notes of whetting stone and blue raspberries. California.

One of the few world-class Merlots in Napa Valley has always come from Pahlmeyer and the 2008 looks to be no exception. Inky purple-colored the wine offers up chocolatey espresso/mocha/cocoa notes as well as plenty of plum black cherry and blacker fruits. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins surprising elegance and good richness it is not the blockbuster it can be in some vintages but it is very stylish and should drink well for 10-15 years.
