What is Jayson? The Jayson portfolio is the second label of Pahlmeyer, crafted to honor its namesake – with wines that express Jayson’s unquenchable desire for excellence and artisanal winemaking.

The Lineup:

2014 Pahlmeyer “Jayson” Chardonnay, Napa Valley
On Sale $44.99
Deftly balanced, if on the weightier side, offering complex toasty, smoky oak and rich nectarine, white peach and citrus flavors, with a pithy citrus texture that gives this a mild tannic impression. Drink now through 2020. 2,600 cases made.

20115 Pahlmeyer “Jayson” Proprietary Red Wine, Napa Valley
On Sale $44.99
Firm and well-structured, with a pleasing burst of blackberry and wild berry, plum and black cherry notes, tilting into a fruit-bowl medley of currant and raspberry flavors, with a long, sustained finish. Drink now through 2029. 2,500 cases made.

What is Wayfarer? After nearly 30 years as an acclaimed Napa Valley vintner Jayson Pahlmeyer became increasingly entranced by the wines of Burgundy. “Every oenophile eventually gravitates to the wines of Burgundy,” he says. In the early 1990s, Jayson began seeking out the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards in the world.

2015 Wayfarer Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard, Sonoma Coast (Fort Ross-Seaview)
On Sale $72.99
The 2015 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard has an intense nose of pineapple, guava and ginger with honeysuckle, marzipan, cashews and brioche. The medium-bodied palate is incredibly taut for such a gregarious nose with wonderful tension framing the pronounced tropical flavors beautifully, finishing with lingering savory notes and a gorgeous creamy texture. 800 cases were made.

2014 Wayfarer Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast (Fort Ross-Seaview)
On Sale $82.99
Crafted from 12 different clones planted throughout the estate vineyard, farmed to perfection, this is a delicious and exuberant expression of blueberry crumble that’s succulent and inviting in every way. Full bodied, it retains enough acidity to remain mouthwatering and yet complex, a subtlety of white pepper and cardamom biting at the its heels. Drink now through 2024.

“Pahlmeyer certainly has one of the most consistently superb resumés for the last 30 years that any winery could desire.”
Robert Parker

2015 Pahlmeyer Estate Chardonnay, Napa Valley
On Sale $72.99
The 2015 Chardonnay, which comes from both Old Wente and Dijon clones, is off the estate property on Atlas Peak. It has that noteworthy greenish hue to its light-gold color, which I consider a high-sign of quality. Orange blossom, tangerine oil, mango, subtle smoky wood, a full-bodied texture, terrific purity and acidity, great fruit and a long, long finish are the stuff of great California Chardonnay. This cuvée also has a phenomenal track record for aging for at least 7-10 years, and in certain vintages even longer.

2014 Pahlmeyer Estate Merlot, Napa Valley
On Sale $72.99
Blackberries, blueberries, forest floor and hints of Spanish cedar. Full-bodied and tight with firm and silky tannins and long and beautiful focus. Goes on for minutes. Terrific wine. Drink or hold.
97 points, James Suckling

2014 Pahlmeyer Estate Proprietary Red Wine, Napa Valley
On Sale $154.99
Fantastic aromatics with blackberries, blackcurrants and iodine. Licorice, too. Medium to fulll body, fine and velvety tannins and a very polished and gorgeous finish. Caressing and dialed in. Why wait? An intellectual wine here. Lovely now.
97 points, James Suckling
