“The 2007 Jayson Red features layers of black fruit - blackberry, black cherry and plum - with milk chocolate, baker's cocoa dust, tar and earth. It is dense in the mouth with big supple tannins and a lingering finish. This focused and balanced wine is gorgeous now but will continue to develop over the next 8 to 10 years.” – Erin Green, winemaker
2008 Jayson Chardonnay....$41.99
The grapes were hand-sorted and gently whole-cluster pressed. After overnight settling, the juice was racked to barrels for 100% native wild yeast barrel fermentation followed by malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 90% new French oak barrels for eleven months on the lees, which were stirred weekly. It was not fined or sterile filtered.
“This wine has a nice green-yellow color. Its juicy mouthwatering flavors boast layers of tropical fruits and peach nectar accented with apricot croissants. The finish is rich, long and lingering with each layer unfolding beautifully.” – Erin Green, Winemaker
