Winemaker's Notes:

Reminiscent of late summer, our 2011 Pinot Noir suggests black plum, desert sage, warm rose and sunbaked lake shore. Concentrated flavors of ripe strawberries, plums, tomatoes, black cherry cola and sarsaparilla echo on the wine's long finish.

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.
