Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Infinitely satisfying, the 2012 Jayson Red is rich garnet in color with a sparkling ruby edge. Brilliant notes of red and blue berries leap from the glass, accompanied by a hint of warm dust. Ripe raspberry flavors swirl with Bing cherry coat the mouth, while layers of dark chocolate cherry, bittersweet cocoa nibs, earthy minerality, a touch of spicy graham flour and suggestion of sweet cedar hold the seconds captive on the lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of ripe bing cherry, plum and fresh-roasted espresso beans echo in the wine's rich, dark flavors. An earthy minerality lends intriguing complexity before the mouth-feel softens to silky tannins on the finish.
