Pahlmeyer Jayson Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

$49.99

Pahlmeyer's new Jayson Pinot Noir. A fantastic buy. 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 2017 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.

Being kind with the rating. This is a well respected wine maker. Ripe candied cherry fruit with a whole lot of what seems like imitation vanilla extract. Really disjointed. The finesse of the Pinot Noir grape is frankly missing. (Other varietals are probably blended in)
