    November 5, 2016 - Excellent Merlot, showed very well against some difficult competition. Medium ruby red with high intensity. No decant but nose was showing a mix of dark cocoa, baking spices and dark berries. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) with a rich and full body. Long finish showing similar characteristics to the nose. Delicious merlot as always. Drink till 2026.

    July 16, 2016 - Voluptuous, full bodied, great Merlot with lots of aging potential. Black and red fruits, tobacco, coffee and minerals. Incredibly pure and powerful. At this stage lacking a bit of subtlety but I suspect it will grow.

    April 3, 2016 - Similar to my note in 11/2013. Drinks great now. A ripe, rich Merlot. One of my favorite modern vintages in Napa.

    December 3, 2015 - Solid, but did not hold up to the 2007 the Ramey Cabernet tasted next to,it. Likely, just a Merlot thing.

    September 7, 2015 - Having really liked another older Pahlmeyer Merlot a few weeks ago, decided to try another and not disappointed. Beginning to think I like their Merlot over the proprietary red sometimes. This is one of the best Merlot to come from California. Big, inky purple, mouth filling and fruity but not over the top, probably benefits from the small amount of cab, this is a delicious wine
