    This 2002 is performing even better than it was in 2005, when I awarded it 92 points. It reveals an inky/blue/purple color in addition to classic notes of black raspberries, blueberries, and blackberry jam. Juicy, succulent and full-bodied with a hint of steely minerality underpinning the wine's massive fruit, this blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc comes from a vineyard that is farmed by superstar viticulturist David Abreu and was made by Heidi Peterson Barrett. In 2002, yields were a minuscule 1.8 tons of fruit per acre and the wine was aged 22 months in 40% new French oak. Just under 800 cases were produced of this blockbuster from a south-facing, warm, hillside vineyard between St. Helena and Calistoga. Close to full maturity, it should have a long, positive evolution ahead of it. One of the strongest efforts I have ever tasted from Jones Family Vineyards, the 2002 should last for another 10-15+ years.

    This wine exhibits ripe, rich, concentrated currant, plum and blackberry fruit that's vibrant and intense without being overdone. The finish offers complexity and the tannins are ripe and integrated. 700 cases made.

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.
