The 2006 Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir has a deep dark garnet color. In the glass the aromas open immediately, revealing layers of rich dense fruit, earth and sweet spices. The palate also offers layer upon layer of concentrated small berries, black raspberry and cherries, balanced with nicely integrated oak. This full-bodied wine finishes with finesse and long lingering flavors.
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a 100% destemmed cuvee made from Dijon clones 667, 828, and 777. It reveals classic Cote de Nuits aromas of damp forest floor, black raspberries, cherries, and spring flowers. With terrific fruit, full body, ripe tannin, and a round, generous, savory mouthfeel already displaying tremendous complexity, it should drink well for 7-8 years.
