Pahlmeyer Jayson Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay has a lovely savory, yeasty/toasty nose over a core of warm grapefruit, fresh apricots and allspice with a touch of candied ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and spicy layers, supported by great freshness and finishing long and creamy.
Wine SpectatorRich and generous, offering an outlay of fig, honeydew, anise and light apricot flavors. Shows a measure of finesse and grace. Given the full body, this is quite elegant. Drink now through 2023. 1,900 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastReductive in the best way, this wine opens in a layering of salty brine and oak as a creamy palate reveals itself with power and concentration. Baked apple, gingersnap and cinnamon toast configure around bold structure and moderate acidity, allowing for a fulsome, voluptuous experience.
