New release of Pahlmeyer's famous Chardonnay. Limited.
94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Chardonnay is light gold-colored with a greenish hue and beautiful, fresh tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, pear, honeysuckle and a touch of citrus. It is not as dense and concentrated as the 2013, but I love its vibrancy and beautiful subtleties and nuances. It is another top-notch effort from Pahlmeyer to drink over the next 7-8 years"
Inaugural release! The Pahlmeyer "Jayson" Sauvignon Blanc is the latest addition to the Pahlmeyer lineup and an amazing buy.
The Pahlmeyer "Jayson" Chardonnay is the second label of the "Industrial Strength" Pahlmeyer Chardonnay and an amazing buy.
92 Points Wine Spectator: "A touch of creamy oak adds a nice textural dimension, joining vibrant apple, pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Ends with a dash of butterscotch. Drink now through 2022."
After a meticulous selection process in assembling the final blend of the Pahlmeyer Chardonnay, the winery assigned the remaining lots of wine to the "Jayson" label. The Pahlmeyer Jayson Chardonnay was hand crafted with the same care and attention that is given to all of their wines and the fruit comes from the same vineyard as the $85 version . It is an excellent value at a fraction of the price of regular Pahlmeyer Chardonnay.
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.
