JAX Cabernet Sauvignon

JAX Vineyards sources this estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s vineyard in northern Calistoga. David Jackson purchased the family vineyard after 5 years of searching for his ideal terroir encompassing alluvial loam soil, dry farmed vineyards, and the elemental protection of our little valley. The JAX name represents an updated twist and memorable abbreviation of the family name

Tasting Notes:

This wine is powerful, dense, but beautifully balanced and precise. In the glass is has an evocative nose defined by true cassis, lush red currants and espresso. The palate shows dark brambly berries and a silky, expansive impression from the Cabernet Sauvignon and exotic spice notes and power from the Cabernet Franc. The structure and density of this vintage will allow the wine to age for decades, and though it is now only in its infancy, this wine is forward and muscular.
