Overview of the Wine
Pahlmeyer was founded in 1986, by a desire to be great by its eponymous creator Jayson Pahlmeyer. With a dream to create a California Mouton, Jayson and his partners spared no resource to make this dream a reality. Whether it was finding the perfect piece of land high atop Napa Valley’s Atlas Peak or covertly smuggling in Bordeaux cuttings, all pieces of Pahlmeyer’s history have led to its place as one of the top brand names from Napa Valley. From the very beginning, Pahlmeyer has been dedicated to crafting fine wines from the best fruit sources possible. In California, this means high elevation mountain sites, where the grapes are afforded more sunlight, cooler temperatures, and less fertile soils, which together create ideal conditions. Pahlmeyer sources the majority of their fruit from four key locations: Pahlmeyer Estate (Atlas Peak), Stagecoach (Atlas Peak / Pritchard Hill), Rancho Chimiles, and Antica.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Jayson Chardonnay opens with notes of fresh-cut pears and orange blossom that permeate the aroma. In the glass, the wine evolves and deepens, adding bright, zesty hints of creamy lemon meringue and tangy lemon curd. On the inviting palate, the wine’s lively acidity is balanced with rich notes of pear, tangerine and baked apricot, wrapped up with a subtle kiss of caramel and vanilla on the playful finish.

92 Points - James Suckling
A touch of creamy oak adds a nice textural dimension, joining vibrant apple, pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Ends with a dash of butterscotch.
