PAHLMEYER 2012 CHARDONNAY SONOMA COAST 750mL

ANTONIO GALLONI 93+ POINTS - "Vintages 2011 and 2012 represent a transition at Pahlmeyer. The 2011s were started by Erin Green and finished by Kale Anderson, who also makes Pahlmeyer's Napa Valley wines. Beginning in 2012, winemaking duties at Pahlmeyer have been divided between Anderson, who now focuses exclusively on the Napa wines, and Bibians Gonzalez-Rave, who is in charge of all the Sonoma wines. At the same time, Pahlmeyer is bottling a number of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from their Wayfarer property in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA separately. Those new releases are reviewed here. It's certainly exciting times at Pahlmeyer. The future looks very bright.

"The 2012 Chardonnay was bottled just two weeks before this tasting. Lemon, almonds, spices, butter and French oak blossom effortlessly in the glass. A creamy, voluptuous, full-bodied Chardonnay, the 2012 boasts superb depth and volume all the way through to the oily, textured finish. Here, the heavy toast barrels are in evidence, but the wine seems to have more than enough stuffing to handle the oak. I can't wait to see how the 2012 ages."
