(aged in 80% new French oak, with Darnajou being the estate's barrel of choice): Bright ruby-red. Ripe black fruits and baking spices on the nose, showing none of the dried-fruit qualities of the second wine. Big, dense, concentrated and sweet, with sound acidity shaping the dark berry flavors. Substantial dusty tannins arrive late. This wine gained in clarity during its final months of elevage but will need time in bottle to develop more nuance.

The estate's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more typical of the year in its blue and black fruit, violets, asphalt, graphite and pencil shavings. Here, too, there is considerable energy and pure minerality to back up the fruit. Graphite, tar and savory herbs add a measure of gravitas on the deeply resonant, pure finish. This is another fabulous, exciting wine from Jones Family.

About This Producer


Jones Family Vineyards was established in 1996 as a family run winery with the singular focus to produce the finest Cabernet based wines from their special vineyards. Their location on a south facing hillside between St. Helena and Calistoga in the northern Napa Valley provides the ideal combination of soil and climate for the development of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vineyard manager David Abreu and winemakers Heidi Barrett and Thomas Rivers Brown have worked to maximize the potential of the unique location to produce two outstanding wines, the Jones Family Vineyards Cabernet, and a Cabernet blend wine, The Sisters.
