Pahlmeyer Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013

$69.99

Brand new release from Pahlmeyer.  100% Ritchie Vineyard. Limited.93 Points Wine Spectator:  "An expansive style, with lively acidity. Plump, ripe and buttery, this coats the palate with a rich array of fig, melon and tropical tangerine flavors, adding a floral, jasmine scent, enlivened by a nervy edge of acidity. Drink now." 93 Points Antionio Galloni:  "Pahlmeyer's 2013 Chardonnay is gorgeous and also a fascinating contrast to Chardonnay from the family's Wayfarer property on the Sonoma Coast. Here, though, it is the Russian River that speaks with notable eloquence. Orange blossom, butter, new French oak, apricot pit, mint and spice notes abound. The 2013 is quite extroverted in style, but less overt than in years past. The new Francois Freres barrels are evident but also very nicely integrated. The 2013 is the first vintage made exclusively from Ritchie Vineyard fruit, whereas in the past, grapes from Wayfarer were part of the blend

Liquified poached pears. Lemon meringue, apricot, and toast also make appearances.

Drinking great now, but will benefit from additional time to integrate. Oak and acid playing nicely together.
