Pahlmeyer Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine SpectatorRich, with tiers of explosive dark berry, plum, blueberry and melted black licorice flavors. This is tight and focused, maintaining a laser beam of flavor that pushes past the gripping tannins. Best from 2015 through 2025. 2,200 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastA substantial, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the producer's own vineyard, as well as others like Stagecoach, this wine is juicy in black cherry, blackberry and plum, and exceptionally silky and smooth on the palate. High-toned on the finish, with a compelling minerality that is allowed to shine via a well-managed use of oak, it's big on the finish, and will cellar well, through 2012.
