2017 Pahlmeyer Jayson Red Wine Napa
Winemaker Notes: Jayson Red Wine is a distinctive blend from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, crafted to express each vintage with intensity and richness. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance its fresh fruit profile and retain its bright acidity. It was then racked to 35% new french oak barrels for fifteen months of aging.
44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 15% Petite Sirah, 4% Cabernet Franc
VINTAGE NOTES The 2017 growing season started off with record rainfall and ended with a warm, dry summer that led us into harvest. The extra rainfall provided the vines with a strong canopy that helped protect the fruit while it developed full varietal flavors and soft texture. Extra care was taken to balance the fruit load in preparation for the dry summer and this attentiveness continued into the cellar, when the fruit arrived in September.
TASTING NOTES Jayson Red Wine displays dense, vivid red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, blackberry jam, and ripe strawberry play over underlying hints of anise with a warm touch of cassis. The deep fruit extends over a smooth palate supported by well-integrated tannins. This is an appealing, approachable wine, with mouth-coating intensity and hints of chocolate on the finish.
