Producer Notes

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.

Cedar and plum on the nose. Casis and chocolate on the palate. Long finish. This is still drinking nicely. A sneak preview of Screaming Eagle with Heidi Barrett and David Abreu.

This wine is in its teenage years and as a result, letting the wine rest for another five years in the cellar is recommended. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new and 60% second year French oak. Black cherry red color with a few legs showing moderate pigmentation. Strong black olive, cassis, and mint. Well balanced with sweet tannins and integrated acidity. A little more fruit in the mouth would be nice (and I expect with a few more years the fruit will reassert itself).

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
