Wine.com100% Pinot Noir, the Jayson Pinot Noir is a declassification of the Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir. After a meticulous selection process in assembling the final blend of the Pahlmeyer Pinot Noir, Erin Green, determines which to bottle under the Jayson label. The winery never purchases juice or wine to make Jayson wines. Erin describes the wine as having 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, with a long elegant finish. The fruit and acid balance in this wine make it a quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, lively in the mouth with lots of stuffing and complexity at the same time, she says.
