Pahlmeyer Jayson Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2013

$59.99

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 2013 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.

Clean deep Ruby red, with aromas of red and black fruit and gentle spice adding oak and leather. The palate shows blackberry, cranberry and cherry flavors with toasty oak. The wine is well balanced with fine tannins and acidity to match. Some cacao and earthy minerality brings this wine to a lingering finish. Need to decant this 2013 to fully enjoy!

Better than the 2012, this delightful PN has nice spice, pepper, raspberry, anise and herb flavors. Paired great with a Swiss Chard-pine nut tart.

I admit to being a big Pahlmeyer fan. Their wines impress regardless of variety or grape. This Jayson Pinot has not been my favorite, preferring their Red Blend or anything from their flagship Pahlmeyer label. However, this young wine opened beautifully. Dark cherry and blackberry tones with a smooth, caressing balance that should improve over time. A solid wine for a mid priced label. Cheers!!
