Description 

Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay.
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I was quite taken with the wines I tasted from Pahlmeyer this year. The Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay. is gorgeous. Layers of lemon pastry, juicy peaches, butter and spices take shape in the glass. The Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay. is a bit restrained for Pahlmeyer, but all the elements are very nicely woven together. There is plenty of varietal character and house style, but in a slightly more reserved way than readers have become accustomed to over the years, mostly because of the cool growing season. This is a beautiful and classy wine through and through.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Bright yellow-green. Subdued but slightly exotic aromas of mirabelle, pineapple and vanilla. Ripe, supple and tropical in character; in a creamier, oakier style than the Sonoma Coast bottling but with nicely integrated acidity. Finishes with a lightly phenolic quality and some spicy, resiny oak. Winemaker Anderson expects to decrease the percentage of new oak used for Pahlmeyer's chardonnay and he may also block a percentage of the malolactic fermentation in the future.
