Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($70) Good full yellow. More minerally on the nose than the Napa Valley offering, with piquant fruit notes of tangerine and pink grapefruit. More intensely flavored and less sweet than the Napa release, but distinctly laid-back and linear today. Conveys the firm acid impression of a cool year-or is this simply a function of the phenolic lift on the back end? A classy, low-fat wine with a light touch. In fact, notes winemaker Erin Green, the 2007 Pahlmeyer chardonnays finished with lower pHs than the 2006s.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
