Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant fuchsia with a garnet core in the glass, the 2011 Jayson Pinot Noir greets the nose with rich, focused aromas of ripe black cherry, forest mulch, pain grillé and leather. The palate comes alive with a concentrated wave of black plum skin and candied cranberries, integrated with a stony minerality that echoes through the wine's lingering finish.

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

About Pahlmeyer:

Jayson Pahlmeyer has been producing highly sought-after wines since 1986. It began with Jayson's dream to make world-class Bordeaux-style wine from Napa Valley. Pahlmeyer's estate vineyard - Waters Rance - is situated at 2100 feet in the Atlas Peak appellation of Napa Valley. It is the key source for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Chardonnay. Jayson's passion eventually led him to the Sonoma Coast, where less than seven miles and two ridges from the Pacific Ocean, he planted Wayfarer Farm, their key source for Pinot Noir.
