Good Merlot. Refined. Paired with grilled fillet and roasted vegetables, finished with a brush of cool Berkshire mountain air. Lovely.

Another classic. This was from the Helen Turley era at Pahlmeyer and was one of the bottlings that helped introduce me to finer wine. Superb mint dark chocolate and violet aromatics. This has a dash of Cab Franc in it and you can catch it. Very dark and full with fine grained tannins, black cherry and rich earth. Classy and muscular.

Cedar, black berries, blueberries, dark plums, concentrated ripe fruits with a pronounced barrel profile. Always a top Napa Merlot and this is no exception.
