Pahlmeyer Jayson Red 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Jayson Red Wine displays dense, vivid red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, blackberry jam, and ripe strawberry play over underlying hints of anise with a warm touch of cassis. The deep fruit extends over a smooth palate supported by well-integrated tannins. This is an appealing, approachable wine, with mouth-coating intensity and hints of chocolate on the finish.
A blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 15% Petite Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc.
Deeply structured, with a dense core of lively acidity and tannins framed by dried currant, savory tarragon and sandalwood accents, which gather tension on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2023 through 2029. 6,100 cases made.
Another great value is the 2019 Red Blend Jayson, which has a rich, medium to full-bodied, elegant profile as well as notes of darker currants, cherries, dark chocolate, coffee beans, and scorched earth. It needs a short decant if drinking any time soon, and it has the balance and depth to keep for 10-12 years.
