2016 Jayson Red Napa Valley

The 2016 Jayson Red Wine displays deep ruby to garnet color in the glass. Aromas of cherry and blackberry compote, with just a hint of Jordan almonds, gives way to a deep, dark fruit palate, where dense tannins and focused acidity support the rich fruit over a silky, gratifying finish. Oak aging adds notes of baking spice and cardamom. This is a balanced wine with great depth, made to be enjoyed upon release.

Jayson Red Wine is a distinctive blend of Bordeaux varieties from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, crafted to express each vintage with intensity and richness. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance its fresh fruit profile and retain its bright acidity. It was then racked to barrels (22% New French Oak) for fifteen months and bottled with minimal fining and filtration.
