Pahlmeyer Merlot 2016
Indigo at the core with garnet edges, this gorgeous merlot leads with aromas of candied violet, red plum, and ripe fig. A beautiful freshness accompanies mouthwatering flavors of dark red cherry and raspberry, layers of deep blue fruits, and sophisticated notes of savory grilled herbs. Ultra plush and velvety with rich dark chocolate, espresso, and earthy riverstone emerging throughout the luxurious finish.
91% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Pahlmeyer story is a tale of international intrigue, passion and Hollywood stardom, of Jayson Pahlmeyer, friends and family, of French clones, legendary winemaking and iconic wines. Once upon a time, there was a man with a bold, irrepressible spirit – a trial attorney called to the profession by its fast and furious nature. While successful in his career, a hypnotic captivation with wine soon eclipsed his legal ambitions. He had an insatiable thirst for adventure and a certainty that Northern California (his native soil) held considerable winegrowing potential.
