2019 Pahlmeyer Jayson Red Wine Napa Valley
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.
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.
ABOUT JAYSON WINES Jayson wines are born from two of the most renowned winegrowing regions in the world – the iconic Napa Valley and the pioneering Sonoma Coast. Every vintage is meticulously made with the attention to detail for which Pahlmeyer is known and trusted, while capturing the spirit of its founder whose huge personality, humor and joy for living are an integral part of the Pahlmeyer legacy.
James Suckling - "Blackcurrants and blueberries on the nose with some spice and sandalwood undertones. Medium to full body with creamy tannins and a firm, racy finish. Lots of dark-berry and crushed-stone character at the end. Focused and well crafted. Drinkable now, but better in two or three years."
Jeb Dunnuck - "Another great value is the 2019 Red Blend Jayson, which has a rich, medium to full-bodied, elegant profile as well as notes of darker currants, cherries, dark chocolate, coffee beans, and scorched earth. It needs a short decant if drinking any time soon, and it has the balance and depth to keep for 10-12 years."
