Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Pahlmeyer Merlot has deep ruby color in the glass. Aromas of red fruit, crushed raspberries and jam mingle with notes of orange-spiced tea and blueberry muffin. On the palate, a rich entry turns soft and plush, with bright red fruit supported by balanced acidity. This is a juicy wine, with satisfying depth and length.
Blend 96.5% Merlot, 2.5% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sustainable Viticulture

Pahlmeyer Estate Vineyards reflect a commitment to sustainable farming. Carefully-selected grasses are grown for erosion and dust control, water depletion, beneficial insect habitat and the nutrients released into the soil as they decompose. Organic compost is used in areas requiring additional nutrients, while intricate canopy management ensures ample sunlight and air flow.

Every aspect of vine work is done by hand and bird boxes and perches welcome birds of prey, natural predators of gophers and other root-feeding pests. Water usage is micro-managed with customized systems and individual drip lines so that irrigation is minimized in each vineyard sub-block.
