2005 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1036610 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Merlot from their holdings on Atlas Peak has fresh brambleberry, mulberry and mocha-infused fruit, medium to full body, excellent acidity, and wonderful vibrancy and vigor. It is youthful at age 10. The alcohol level is listed at 15.2%, but again, it is completely hidden by the wine’s wealth of concentration. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good red-ruby. Dark fruit aromas complicated by violet, bitter chocolate and minerals; more complex than the young 2006. Tightly wound but already sexy, with fresh acidity and underlying minerality giving the dark fruit flavors excellent definition. This seems distinctly sweeter than the 2006 owing to its early harmoniousness, but is actually lower in pH and higher in acidity, according to Jayson Pahlmeyer. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This brash and highly ripened take on Merlot will never be accused of restraint, and, for some, its extravagant display of caramelly oak and very sweet fruit may be too much of a good thing. While we shamelessly confess to liking its unbridled richness, we do wish that it showed just a bit more control, but it will make a good partner to appropriately full-flavored stews and braised meats, and it will develop well for four of five years. It is just enough deeper than Pahlmeyer's "Jayson" to earn its higher rating. Inner quote mark (3/2009)
