2013 Pahlmeyer Merlot Napa Valley - California Red
Following his dream, Jayson Pahlmeyer partnered with the owner of a 55-acre site in southeast Napa Valley. The two shared devotion to Jayson’s audacious dream of creating a “California Mouton,” and began imagining the vineyard’s potential.
The key, they were sure, lay in planting the finest French clones of the red Bordeaux varieties - a considerable roadblock since importing clones is an international offense.
Composition: 93% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine has black amethyst color and a nose of boysenberry, violets, vanilla and an appealing hint of dust.
The velvety palate reveals juicy red cherry and raspberry fruit, backed with an earthy kick, gripping structure, and fully integrated oak.
Distinctive dark, savory notes from the Petit Verdot highlight the lingering finish.
