Pahlmeyer has released the first of its highly anticipated 2013 vintage red wines from Napa Valley–the 2013 Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley. Jayson is the second label of Pahlmeyer, crafted from select vineyard blocks and barrels that don’t make it into Pahlmeyer, yet made with the same standards, intensity and care that go into the flagship Pahlmeyer wines. Select lots from the Pahlmeyer Estate Vineyard, as well as Stagecoach and Rancho Chimiles, two long-standing vineyard partners complete a bold mountain wine. Over 200 component wines for Jayson and Pahlmeyer are kept in separate lots to give us a large palate of aromas, flavors and textures to define the wine’s profile.
The 2013 growing season was ideal due to healthy vine stress brought on by drought conditions and nearly perfect weather throughout. The resulting wines will likely be the most heralded in Pahlmeyer history. True to the vintage, this wine’s color is rich burgundy and dark to the core. Intense aromas of black raspberry, ripe blueberry and vanilla bean, dusted with sophisticated notes of crushed slate. The entry is plush with ripe black cherry and warm baking spices, lifted by a fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins. Its ever-lasting finish lingers on notes of wild blackberry and cedar-infused dark chocolate. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
