2015 Jayson Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Deep ruby in color, this wine bursts with aromas of dark fruit and rose petals. Delicate blackberry and bing cherry flavors leap from the elegant and velvety palate followed by pronounced earthy notes. Intriguing hints of dried herbs and slate highlight the wine’s long, vivid finish.

Grape clusters were hand-picked in the cool of the night, then hand-sorted at the winery. We reserved 1% for whole-cluster fermentation, then gently destemmed the rest using only whole, intact berries for fermentation. After cold-soaking for five to seven days, the grapes entered fermentation for 14 to 19 days, then underwent gentle basket pressing. We used 100% free-run juice to ensure optimum quality, and aged the wine for nine months in 26% new French oak.
