Light gold straw, intense and seamlessly integrated aromas of white peach, orange peel, clementines, toasted oak and fresh cardamom stream from the glass. On the palate, flavors of honeysuckle and orange blossoms are enriched with notes of fresh roasted almonds. Supple and elegant, with balanced acidity, great depth, volume and focus, this wine is the consummate expression of Sonoma Coast Chardonnay.
"Pahlmeyer’s spectacular 2012 Chardonnay offers abundant aromas of hazelnuts, buttered citrus, tropical fruits and honeysuckle intermixed with a touch of tangerine oil. It cuts a full-bodied swath across the palate, and possesses good acidity, exuberant fruit and an undeniably sexy style."
The Wine Advocate
"Intense, with pure, rich, vivid pear, apricot, apple and spice notes that take on a cedar and hazelnut edge on the finish, gaining length and depth. Ends with a burst of anise and smoke. Drink now through 2020.
