Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastHugely concentrated and a touch reduced, this is a lovely, generously full-bodied wine, rich as a dark-cherry cobbler in flavor. The barrel oak is pronounced and supportive of the wine's seasonings of black pepper, violet and plum. The ripeness and richness are profound, met by a structure that suggest further cellaring; enjoy best 2025-2030.
Wine SpectatorA decadently ripe aroma leads to flavors of green olive, dried cherry and raspberry that are vibrant and well-spiced. Fig and tarry notes emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,200 cases made.
