For starters the 2007 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast may be one of Pahlmeyer's finest Chardonnays to date (it's coming right on the heels of their two brilliant 2006 Chardonnays). Most of the fruit comes from the Ritchie Vineyard a site from which Mark Aubert also produces incredible wines. This 1600-case cuvee is fashioned from the old Wente and Mt. Eden clones. Like the finest California Chardonnays it reveals a light greenish hue to its straw color in addition to a beautiful perfume of nectarines brioche subtle smoke crushed rocks and gobs of white peach and pineapple fruit. This full-bodied beauty should drink easily for 5-6 years.

The new kid on the block from Pahlmeyer follows brilliantly in the footsteps laid down by its predecessors going back now more than half a decade.

The new kid on the block from Pahlmeyer follows brilliantly in the footsteps laid down by its predecessors going back now more than half a decade. It is an amazing record of achievement that is seconded by the 2006 Chardonnay also reviewed in this Issue and it places Pahlmeyer solidly in the pantheon of outstanding Chardonnay producers in California. This wine if anything is too young even to be considered for drinking. It may have a strong bold personality highlighted by sweet appley scents and smoky oak overlays but it is also tight in the latter palate and has not begun to open up fully. Lay it down for a year or three or more and drink the 2006 in the meantime.
