An unapologetically plump and flamboyant style that offers pure pleasure. Blackberry and spicy toast aromas lead to rich, complex flavors of black cherry and mocha, with a hint of dry herb. The finish lasts forever.
...no winery in California has had such a long succession of brilliant Merlots as Jayson Pahlmeyer... plenty of mocha, cherry jam and cassis... top-flight. Very rich, it shows a broad spectrum of flavors and an expansive mouthfeel.
White truffle, smoke, licorice, tobacco & iron are some of the notes that emerge... ferrous/savory notes that are most prominent... firm tannins that remain unyielding... Dollops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon round out the blend.
