Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) This complex 2009 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay hits you with layers of fresh mandarin orange zest, white peach, melon and candied lemon. Spicy nutmeg, vanilla pot de crème and toasty notes are balanced by bright acidity and an intense, mouthwatering, long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Tantalizing and sophisticated, the 2011 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay offers rich aromas of toasted graham cracker, caramelized peach and lychee, and hints of tarragon and lavender. Notes of lemon zest, a touch of fresh cream and alluring acidity present a luscious composition. Beautifully balanced, with a cleansing finish, this wine will age elegantly for years.
