Large-Format Merlot Collection


From one of California's most acclaimed producers of Merlot comes a rare vertical lot showcasing the exceptional opulence, concentration and complexity of this classic red variety from the winery's esteemed Napa Valley vineyard sites.


Fruit for these wines was grown primarily in dedicated, eastern-facing blocks on the Pahlmeyer Estate Vineyard atop Atlas Peak, along with mountain grapes from Rancho Chimiles and Stagecoach Vineyard.


This unique, 12-bottle vertical lot showcases Pahlmeyer Merlot across six singular Napa Valley vintages from 2007 to 2012, with 1.5-liter and 3-liter bottles from each vintage. More than a decade of cellaring has opened stunning new depth and detail in these impeccably balanced wines. A profound pleasure to uncork now and in the years to come.


"The Pahlmeyer Merlot is distinct and different, a showcase of the impact of mountain vineyard sites and impeccable farming," said winemaker Katie Vogt. "Our commitment to Merlot is a strong part of the Pahlmeyer legacy. As we tasted and maintained our 3-liter library this spring, these historic vintages of Merlot were inspiring and compelling-this is the perfect opportunity to highlight them."
