Tasted out of bottle, the classic 2016 Chardonnay was barrel fermented and aged all in new oak. It offers a killer bouquet of caramelized orchard fruits, hints of pineapple, spice, brioche and white flowers. Possessing full-bodied richness, serious flavor authority, notable freshness and a great finish, this is high-class Chardonnay all the way.
The 2016 Chardonnay has a lovely savory, yeasty/toasty nose over a core of warm grapefruit, fresh apricots and allspice with a touch of candied ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and spicy layers, supported by great freshness and finishing long and creamy. (LPB)
Pahlmeyer's 2016 Chardonnay (Napa Valley) is bright, precise and nuanced, even though it underwent full malolactic fermentation and was aged in 100% new heavy toast Francois Freres barrels. Apricot, honey, dried flowers and lightly buttery notes get a kick of energy from the freshness of vintage and the personality of the mountain sites (Estate and Antica) that inform this bottling, Winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez-Rave has brought an added level of finesse to the Pahlmeyer Chardonnay.

Reductive in the best way, this wine opens in a layering of salty brine and oak as a creamy palate reveals itself with power and concentration. Baked apple, gingersnap and cinnamon toast configure around bold structure and moderate acidity, allowing for a fulsome, voluptuous experience. (VB)
Rich and generous, offering an outlay of fig, honeydew, anise and light apricot flavors. Shows a measure of finesse and grace. Given the full body, this is quite elegant. Drink now through 2023. (JL)
