    October 5, 2014 - A beautiful merlot. Still lots of life left. Dark fruit, plum blackberry and bramble. A hint of rosemary. Long finish of 30 seconds. Very enjoyable. Will stand up to normal cab foods.

    July 20, 2014 - Pahlmeyer makes one of the best Merlots in Napa Valley. This has aromas of plum, cherry, tobacco, dusty berry and raspberry. Nose is really singing today. Very big wine and coats the whole mouth, it has flavors of black cherry, plum, licorice, black raspberry and a touch of herb. Finish sails on for 35-40 seconds. Smooth tannins and this is gorgeous in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly right now.

    June 20, 2014 - Popped and let breathe for 90 min. Super big wine, packed with black cherry, berries, coffee, still wound tight but a luscious texture coats the palate on the finish. Very California in style, no surprise there. Still developing, probably benefit from at least two more years.

    March 22, 2014 - Fantastic.

    I have always had a prejudice against Merlot (even before sideways) because I never had good Merlot.

    Poured through a vinturi into decanter, and consumes over the next hour. Expansive and expressive. Cherry and blue fruits, with a nice mouth feel and long balanced finish.

    Should run for a while, problem will be getting more, and having willpower to hold it.

    January 25, 2014 - Served alongside a Keplinger Red Slope and Lillian Syrah. This was completely outclassed. Still, very nice with plum, black cherry, and mocha on the nose with the same on the palate. Nice long finish with decent grip
