Pahlmeyer Jayson Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012

$54.99

Pahlmeyer's new Jayson Pinot Noir! LImited. 94 Points Wine Entusiast: "Crisp and crunchy red fruit like cranberry surround a tight, grippy structure seasoned well in cola and Asian spice. Full bodied, the wine is textured and elegant, robust without being overbearing, a standout for the producer and the appellation in a picture-perfect vintage year." In 1998, Pahlmeyer (know for their Napa Cabs and Chardonnay) purchased the Wayfarer Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast near Flowers, Williams Selyem, and Marcassin, and spent years preparing the site for their first-ever Pinot Noir. Winemaker Erin Green worked with Bob Cabral of Williams-Selyem to choose a dozen Pinot clones, and planted using dense spacing and trellising reminiscent of Burgundy. The result? The Pahlmeyer 2012 Jayson Pinot Noir is a stunning, sensuous Pinot with a nose of bing cherries and rich earth, with blackberry and elegant tannins on the palate; the wine has a long complex finish with touches of plum and spice. The fruit and acid balance make it a quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, lively in the mouth with lots of stuffing and complexity at the same time.

Opulent, but balanced. Lots of ripe fruits and savory spice. Not super complex, but enjoyable!

Subdued a bit, structure is here but may take some time to show itself on the nose.

Unbelievable beautiful big Pinot. Decadent, bold but not over powering. Hints of cedar, tobacco. The finish is gentle and soft, and does not leave you wanting for anything more....
