What do people on the Board think about Pahlmeyer wines? I have not tried any, but just saw the review of Jayson in WS Weekly and thought I may give it a try.
Original Post
The '96 Merlot was one of the 3 best New World Merlots I have ever had... and I do not like New World Merlots.

I also enjoy the meritage "Red Blend" with some years on them.
THE 291,

You sound almost exactly like Parker in his review of the 2001 Pride Mt. Top Merlot. Weird! Eek

Here's a focused exerpt (from 2001 Pride Mt. Top Merlot):

"is a candidate for the finest merlot-based wine I have ever tasted from northern California...It's that spectacular...and I'm not a fan of New World Merlot! "

1. Described the 1997 Pahlmeyer Merlot as "liquid snickers".

2. Agrees (mostly) with the 2001 Paloma and Pride (regular) merlot scores. He gave the Paloma 94 points and the Pride 92 points.

I think he may be coming around the corner on Northern Cali merlots.

As for Pahlmeyer, the scores were measurably higher (avg. 5 points?) when Turley was consulting for them. Erin Green seems to be earning better scores recently, but she's still not receiving the 95+ scores that marked the middle 90's for Pahlmeyer.

The 2001 Pahlmeyer Table Red received a 91+.
