Jayson Pahlmeyer started his own winery in the 1980’s as an attempt to create a Mouton-type empire within California. He wisely chose the Atlas Peak AVA as the place to build on his vision.
Pahlmeyer Wines had earned a reputation for their big, bold taste crafted from prestigious mountain fruit in the Napa Valley. With everything going according to plan, Jayson and his winemaking team were ready to look beyond their portfolio and ended up doing so in the 1992 vintage. It was a particularly exceptional year with strong yields, so they decided to launch a second label that would complement the Pahlmeyer portfolio: Jayson by Pahlmeyer.
Today, Jayson offers an expanded portfolio of wines known for their rich, high-quality taste that are an homage to their founder’s huge personality, humor and joy for living.
Jayson Chardonnay has Pahlmeyer prints all over it. It’s a gorgeoeus, racy Chard that opens with notes of orange blossom, jasmine and freshly sliced pears. In the glass, the wine evolves and deepens, adding bright and zesty hints of creamy lemon meringue, tart citrus fruit and a splash of minerality. On the palate, the wine’s lively acidity is balanced with rich notes of pear, tangerine and baked apricot, wrapped up with a hint of caramel and vanilla on smooth and creamy finish.
