Blending classic Napa Valley opulence with Burgundian-style restraint, the 2018 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay opens with generous aromas of Meyer lemon curd, citron, toasted brioche and hints of delicate white florals. The palate offers richness up front and on the long finish, with mouth-watering mid-palate acidity and flinty wet stone characteristics giving the wine attractive depth and substantial texture. This Chardonnay delivers notes of crisp green apple, ripe nectarine and white peach that tantalizingly mingle with hints of cinnamon, vanilla bean and crème brûlée.

Tasted from barrel, the 2018 Chardonnay is shaping up to be magnificent. Fresh, light on its feet and saline - surprisingly so - the 2018 dazzles with its energy and total class. This may be the single most elegant Chardonnay I have ever tasted from Pahlmeyer. All of the richness is there but bright lemon confit, white flowers, mint and tropical overtones all grace this exquisite Chardonnay. I can't wait to taste it from bottle. In 2018, Pahlmeyer will not bottle a Savoir-Faire selection; all of the best fruit is here.

Not yet bottled, the 2018 Chardonnay is a brilliant effort in the making, showing a rich, powerful, classic Pahlmeyer. Buttered citrus, toasted bread, honeysuckle, and brioche all flow to a full-bodied Chardonnay that has both richness and freshness.

A tank sample to be bottled in December, the 2018 Chardonnay springs from the glass with vivacious pink grapefruit, white peach and lemon tart scents with touches of fresh ginger, orange blossoms, beeswax and shaved almonds. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers super-intense citrus flavors with loads of savory sparks and a satiny texture, finishing on a lingering ginger nut note.
