Palate

Within a structure similar to a French Pomerol, lies a classic California concentration of ripe, rich fruit.

Growing Conditions

The 2002 vintage of Merlot is another gloriously rich, profuse elixir in the classic Pahlmeyer style. Sold out.

Bottling

The wine was bottled with neither fining nor filtration on April 27, 2004.

Winemaking

The grapes were given a five-day cold soak before fermentation, and fermented on their own natural yeast.
