2019 Jayson Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Our dynamic 2019 Pinot Noir has beautiful structure, layered flavors and smooth, plush texture. Hints of soft leather, dried red fruit and cherry cola open, while the palate fills with notes of Italian maraschino cherry, dark plum, ripe wild blackberry and dried fig before finishing with appealing savory hints. A subdued oak presence supports the fruit and balances the savory characteristics. Enjoy with roasted duck with a sweet plum sauce, or a well-aged manchego.

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. Gravity-fed, with gentle punchdowns. After extended cold soak, the grapes entered a cool fermentation for 14 to 19 days to preserve Pinot Noir aromatics. The free-run wine was drained to 61% new French oak barrels where the wine aged for 9 months.
