Jax Vineyards Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750ML
2016 JAX CABERNET SAUVIGNON JAX VINEYARDS, CALISTOGA
JAX Vineyards sources our estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s vineyard in northern Calistoga. David Jackson purchased the family vineyard after 15 years of searching for his ideal terroir. Ultimately that terroir encompassed alluvial loam soil, once dry farmed (now minimally irrigated) and in the elemental protection of our little valley. The Jax name represents an updated twist on the family name. Opening with aromas of blackberries, cassis and forest floor, this indulgent and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon showcases great length and focus on the palate. Already elegant and well-structured at its release, this wine will continue to evolve in complexity and refinement for many years to come. THE CRAFT Our fruit is handpicked, sorted and cold-soaked immediately. Following fermention, this wine is aged 21 months in 70% new French oak. This wine offers dark, concentrated depth and character. We recommend opening the wine 30 minutes to an hour prior to consumption to allow aromatics to open and evolve.
