Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Pinot noir is a striking deep, dark ruby-garnet color. It opens in the glass with dense, creamy black raspberry and black cherry. Notes of cocoa dust and hints of gravel add to its complexity. The palate is firm but with approachable tannins. This wine drinks beautifully now but will continue to evolve for up to 8 to 10 years.

About Pahlmeyer:

Jayson Pahlmeyer has been producing highly sought-after wines since 1986. It began with Jayson's dream to make world-class Bordeaux-style wine from Napa Valley. Pahlmeyer's estate vineyard - Waters Rance - is situated at 2100 feet in the Atlas Peak appellation of Napa Valley. It is the key source for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Chardonnay. Jayson's passion eventually led him to the Sonoma Coast, where less than seven miles and two ridges from the Pacific Ocean, he planted Wayfarer Farm, their key source for Pinot Noir.
