Description: The story of the Jayson Cabernet is rooted in France almost literally. Jayson Pahlmeyer wanted to create the Mouton of California, right down to the vines themselves, which import rules made nearly impossible. A smugglers story of flights through Canada, switched labels at customs, and a little bit of luck resulted in this Bordeaux clone of Cabernet taking root in Napa circa 1981. A lush, French-style Cabernet that owes its existence to a very American tale.
