Winemaking Notes: The Jayson Chardonnay is a "declassification" of the "Industrial Strength" Pahlmeyer Chardonnay. After a meticulous selection process in assembling the final blend of our Pahlmeyer Chardonnay, we felt that the quality of the remaining lots of wine were of a class that deserved the "Jayson" label. The 2005 Jayson Chardonnay was hand crafted with the same care and attention that is given to all of our wines. It is an excellent value at a portion of the price of the Pahlmeyer Chardonnay.
"Fresh and sweet smells of apples, lemons, roasted grains, spices and vanilla make for a most intriguing and attractive start, and the wine comes through on the palate with a big, bold, almost swaggering construction that leans heavily on ripeness and flesh yet has a surprisingly alive bounce to its deep and lengthy flavors. Toast and caramel add to the wine's complexity, and its bright ending promises that bottle age will see it holding up nicely for several years to come."
