2018 Jayson Red Napa Valley

Our Red Wine offers bright, fresh-picked fruit notes, as notes of dark plum, raspberry and black currant weave playfully with hints of smooth caramel and butterscotch that linger on the finish. Velvety, expansive and deeply expressive, this is a Merlot-based blend at its fullest potential.

Jayson Red Wine is a distinctive blend from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, crafted to express each vintage with intensity and richness. Grapes for this wine were hand-picked and hand-sorted before undergoing fermentation in stainless steel tanks to enhance its fresh fruit profile and retain its bright acidity. The wine was then racked to 35% new French oak barrels for 16 months of aging.
