For the wine snob: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot – Sourced from AVAs (spanning Napa and Sonoma) is to craft wines that express their unique terroir. At harvest, 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 after 15-30 days soaking on the skins. The finished wine was aged in 35% new, tight grained, French Oak barrels for 22 months. All Jax wines are produced using 100% native spontaneous yeast. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
For the rest of us: Dark aromas of ripe blackberries, currants and a hint of spice. This Cabernet Sauvignon coats the palate with dense layers of black cherry, cocoa nib, forest floor and soft hints of cedar. Full-bodied with broad structure, this wine carries through with vibrant acidity and delicate tannins. This wine will be excellent with pork tenderloin!
