Tasting Notes

95 points Robert Parker: "For starters, the 2007 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast may be one of Pahlmeyer’s finest Chardonnays to date (it’s coming right on the heels of their two brilliant 2006 Chardonnays). Most of the fruit comes from the Ritchie Vineyard, a site from which Mark Aubert also produces incredible wines. This 1,600-case cuvee is fashioned from the old Wente and Mt. Eden clones. Like the finest California Chardonnays, it reveals a light greenish hue to its straw color in addition to a beautiful perfume of nectarines, brioche, subtle smoke, crushed rocks, and gobs of white peach and pineapple fruit. This full-bodied beauty should drink easily for 5-6 years." (12/08) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, intense and well-structured, with ripe pear, apple, melon and a dash of citrus, giving this full-bodied wine a long, complex, mouthcoating finish. Drink now through 2012." (06/09) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full yellow. More minerally on the nose than the Napa Valley offering, with piquant fruit notes of tangerine and pink grapefruit. More intensely flavored and less sweet than the Napa release, but distinctly laid-back and linear today. Conveys the firm acid impression of a cool year-or is this simply a function of the phenolic lift on the back end? A classy, low-fat wine with a light touch. In fact, notes winemaker Erin Green, the 2007 Pahlmeyer chardonnays finished with lower pHs than the 2006s." (<ay/June 09)
