Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94+

Beautiful aromas of subtle smoke, blueberries and blackberries jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. Graphite, spring flower, blueberry and blackberry notes continue on the palate. Full-bodied with plenty of well-integrated tannin, this big, rich wine should drink well for 15+ years.

purely domestic wine report | Rating: 92

Deeply saturated color in the glass, the aromas of violet and sandalwood are coupled with rich, brooding dark chocolate and shadings of graphite, cinnamon and blueberry. The palate is luxuriously rounded smooth chocolate and warm blue/black flavors, along with some toothsome date nuttiness adding to the long finish. Well integrated tannins.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

(from vines on the east side of St. Helena at an altitude of 1,000 feet): Good deep ruby-red. Crystallized dark berries, licorice, graphite and smoke on the musky, slightly candied nose. Sweet and chewy, with warm cassis and mineral flavors. This rather backward wine finishes with a firm spine of tongue-dusting tannins and sound acidity. Thomas Brown, who took over winemaking here with the 2008 vintage, is now vinifying some lots of petit verdot and cabernet franc separately, and picking these vineyards later and riper than previously.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
