This wine is powerful, dense, but beautifully balanced and precise. The evocative nose of this wine is defined by true cassis, lush red currants and espresso. On the palate, there is a broad structure with textured flavors that are plush and full but with grace and elegance interwoven, supported with bright acidity and delicate tannins.
The fruit was hand picked and gently processed using our state-of-the-art Pellenc sorting and destemming system. The pristine, whole berry fruit was fermented in a concrete tank fermenter. Time on skins lasted 15-30 days. The finished wine was aged in 35% new, tight grained, French Oak barrels for 22 months. We employ a variety of cooperages for our Bordeaux varieties including Boutes, Sylvain, Taransaud, Gamba, and Alain Foquet. All Jax wines are produced using 100% native spontaneous yeast. Bottled unflitered and unfined.
