2016 Jayson Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

This wine has vibrant ruby color in the glass. Floral aromas mingle with notes of plum, black cherry, vanilla, forest floor, and granite. A juicy entry leads into a balanced palate, whose cherry and red fruit characters are supported by soft tannins and accented with spice and oak. Cranberry acidity carries over a satisfying finish and makes this wine easy to pair with food.

Grape clusters were hand-picked in the cool of the night, then hand-sorted at the winery. We gently de-stemmed the grapes using only whole, intact berries for fermentation. After extended cold soak, the grapes entered fermentation for 14 to 19 days, then the free run juice was racked to French oak barrels where the wine aged for nine months.
