Best of Napa & Sonoma Wines: 2011-2013 Vintages

By Johannes Marlena and Ryan Koczara , The Corkscrewer Report, September 1, 2015

2013 Pahlmeyer Chardonnay, Napa Valley, 96 points

"If a Napa Chardonnay could be a bombshell of a movie star who lives high up in the Hollywood Hills, this one would be it. This carries with it an air of prestige, elegance, fame, fortune and, yes, snobbiness. Unapologetically snobby. And a bigness and richness and boldness of flavor that has to be tasted to be believed. All of it would be too much if not for a beautiful cut of acidity on the long, long finish. Fear not the price tag—this is American Montrachet all the way.  96 pts"
