Wine Description

"The 2009 Jayson Chardonnay is pale yellow-green in color. Composed of both Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast fruit, it reveals kiwi, melon, tangelo and lemon-lime curd with an underlying flintiness and minerality. Tropical fruit flavors come through on the luscious palate, balanced by a crisp acidity." – Erin Green, Winemaker

The Jayson Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Red are made with the same premium methods that produce our Pahlmeyer wines. We do not grow or purchase additional fruit for the Jayson wines. Rather, all of our grapes are grown and vinified for the Pahlmeyer wines. After winemaker Erin Green selects the Pahlmeyer blends, she composes from the remaining barrels the Jayson Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Red. As a result, the Jayson wines offer exceptional quality and value. Jayson wines are named after our founder, Jayson Pahlmeyer, and are like Jayson himself: big, fun, approachable and "very good looking."
