2007 Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

“The 2007 Pinot Noir is a striking deep, dark ruby-garnet color.  It opens in the glass with dense, creamy black raspberry and black cherry.  Notes of cocoa dust and hints of gravel add to its complexity.  The palate is firm but with approachable tannins.  This wine drinks beautifully now but will continue to evolve for up to 8 to 10 years.” – Erin Green, Winemaker September 2009

James Laube, Wine Spectator, June 2009

Deliciously ripe, smooth and supple-textured, with rich layers of black cherry, blackberry, plum, spicy floral and anise scents. Firm and concentrated, yet elegant and refined, delivering the flavors on a tight beam.

The grape clusters were hand-sorted, and once de-stemmed, the berries were sorted again by hand on the way to tank. After four to five days of pre-fermentation cold maceration in small open-top fermentors, the fruit began 100% native yeast fermentation. Two to three weeks later, the fruit was gently pressed and moved to barrel where it finished primary and secondary fermentations. The wine continued to age in 67% new French oak for fifteen months and it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
