Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. There is no mistaking the Pahlmeyer hand here as ripeness, rich oak and very deep fruit come together in a wine with a big, full-throated Chardonnay voice. It is not long on manners just now, and it is bothered by a bit of finishing coarseness, but with this kind of sheer fruity substance, it leaves no doubt whatsoever as to its ability to improve significantly with age. In fact, we would lobby for twelve months of patience and let it settle down just a bit before pouring it as a partner to rich and savory dishes such as duck and quail.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Pahlmeyer Wines are nothing short of first class. Jason Pahlmeyer’s vineyards were all planted by famed viticultural pro David Abreu. His winemaking was done first by Randy Dunn then Helen Turley took over. Now her protégée Erin Green does the honors while world famous Oenologist Michel Roland consulting. This is California Chardonnay in all of its glory. Robert Parker scored this bottling 95 points saying "The 2008 Chardonnay reveals a greenish hue to its medium straw color as well as a super-intense nose of mandarin oranges, quince, white peaches, and hints of brioche and earth. Full-bodied with good underlying minerality, this crisp, elegant, fresh white wine is another superb effort from a winery that has a Midas touch with Chardonnay."

WA 95pts - Winemaker Notes - The 2008 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is pale yellow-green in color. It has a profuse nose of honeysuckle, vanilla, orange zest and lemon curd. The creamy mouthfeel is balanced with crisp minerality and firm acidity. The finish never ends.
