The 2005 Jayson Pinot Noir has a nose of Bing cherries and rich earth.
Blackberry and elegant tannins on the palate; the wine has a long complex finish with touches of plum and spice, with a long elegant finish. The fruit and acid balance in this wine make it a quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, lively in the mouth with lots of stuffing and complexity at the same time.
The Jayson Pinot Noir is a “declassification” of the Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir. After a meticulous selection process in assembling the final blend of our Pahlmeyer wine, our winemaker, Erin Green, goes through the remaining lots and determines which, if any, are good enough to bottle under the Jayson label. We never purchase juice or wine to make a Jayson wine.
