Pahlmeyer Goes Pinot
Pahlmeyer Winery is branching out. The California winery, which specializes in Bordeaux-based reds and Chardonnay, has now created Pinot Noirs primarily sourced from a vineyard the winery purchased in 2000 in Sonoma. They will be releasing two Pinot Noirs this year, the 2005 Jayson Pinot Noir in April and the 2005 Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir in September. The Jayson is 100% Pinot Noir grapes with a Sonoma appellation. The winemaker, Erin Green describes the wine has having a nose of cherries and earth with blackberries, plum and spice on the palate. It sells for $65.
