2016 Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon reveals its classic expression with deep, elegant black fruit aromas, and hints of plum, licorice, vanilla, fresh cream and the suggestion of forest floor. A juicy entry leads into a dense mid-palate; mocha, dusty chalk, and attractive herbal hints round out the rich flavors.

Our mountain-grown cabernet sauvignon was harvested at night to deliver naturally cooled grapes to the winery by early morning. The whole clusters were gravity-fed onto a vibrating table where they were hand-sorted. The selected clusters were then gently de-stemmed, delivering whole berries onto a vibrating screen for a final hand sorting. After several days of cold maceration, the fruit entered primary fermentation for two to three weeks, was then gently pressed in our stainless steel basket. The wine finished malolactic fermentation in barrel, and aged in 70% new French oak for 17 months.
