James Suckling – 95 Points

A plush, full-bodied red with currant, olive, walnut and chocolate-nut character. It’s full and layered with so much unctuous fruit, but not heavy nor overpowering. Delicious and satisfying now, but will age nicely. —jamessuckling.com

Jeb Dunnuck – 93 Points

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Jayson, which spent 18 months in 88% new French oak, offers a textbook Napa nose of ripe cherries, plums, scorched earth, and leather. Beautiful on the palate as well, it’s full-bodied, has a lush, mouth-filling texture, nicely integrated oak, and polished tannins. It’s up with the top wines at the price and is well worth seeking out. It’s going to keep for at least 15 years or more. May/2022 —jebDunnuck.com

Vinous – 93 Points

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Jayson is a dark, bold and delicious wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Ripe red cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather are front and center in this tasty, inviting red. There is certainly plenty to like. Jan/2022 —Antonio Galloni -vinous.com

This Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the Pahlmeyer commitment to excellence, offering a luxurious and memorable tasting experience that speaks to the pedigree of both the vineyard and the winemaking expertise behind this exceptional bottle. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now for its opulence or cellared to reveal even greater complexities with time.

The story of Pahlmeyer Jayson wines is a tale of passion, innovation, and a commitment to crafting exceptional wines that capture the essence of Napa Valley’s renowned terroir. The Pahlmeyer journey began in the early 1980s when Jayson Pahlmeyer, a trial attorney turned entrepreneur, set out to create wines of distinction. His vision was to establish a winery that would be a standard-bearer for excellence in the Napa Valley.

In 1986, Pahlmeyer released its first vintage, the acclaimed 1984 Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red. This Bordeaux-style blend garnered immediate praise for its richness, complexity, and aging potential, setting the stage for the winery’s reputation as a producer of world-class wines. Jayson’s commitment to quality and innovation became the foundation upon which the Pahlmeyer legacy was built.

Fast forward to the early 2000s, and the Pahlmeyer family expanded their portfolio with the introduction of the Jayson label. Jayson wines were conceived as a more approachable and accessible expression of Napa Valley’s terroir, reflecting the Pahlmeyer commitment to quality but at a more accessible price point.

The Jayson wines aim to showcase the vibrant fruit and character of Napa Valley’s diverse microclimates, offering a range of varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and more. Crafted with the same attention to detail and commitment to excellence as the flagship Pahlmeyer wines, Jayson has carved its niche as an expression of everyday luxury.

Over the years, Pahlmeyer’s dedication to sustainable and meticulous farming practices has further enhanced the quality of their grapes, contributing to the distinctive flavor profiles found in both Pahlmeyer and Jayson wines. The family’s commitment to environmental stewardship aligns with their philosophy that great wines start in the vineyard.

Today, Pahlmeyer Jayson wines continue to be celebrated for their approachability and the ability to capture the essence of Napa Valley’s terroir. With each vintage, they invite wine enthusiasts to embark on a journey through the heart of Napa’s vineyards, where tradition meets innovation, and the spirit of Jayson Pahlmeyer’s vision lives on in every bottle.
