    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

    September 6, 2015 - I did not decant this wine and apparently this was a big mistake. Should have read the blog before opening. The wine was very subdued, rather bland. Minimal aroma. No great faults, but not flavorful. Very disappointing.

    August 19, 2015 - Decanted for about 3 hours prior to drinking. Great fruit on the mid-palate. Very smooth. Nice finish.
