Jax Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga Napa Valley

Opening with aromas of blackberries, cassis and forest floor, this indulgent and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon showcases great length and focus on the palate. Already elegant and well-structured at its release, this wine will continue to evolve in complexity and refinement for many years to come.

Wine Enthusiast - 94 Points
"This wine is plush, lush and fruity, interwoven with tones of cardamom and clove. The palate is rich in feel, bolstered by layers of orange peel, cassis and toasted oak flavors." 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91 Points
"Made up of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is scented of cedar, cassis and camphor with herbs and earth. The medium to full-bodied palate is vivacious with loads of fruit and a velvety texture with a refreshing finish."

David Jackson owns a 10 acres parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards north of Calistoga. Our site is nestled at the foot of Mt. St. Helena just south of Knights Valley. Our 40+ year old vines sit in dry farmed, bale loam soil on an alluvial plane topography.

Under vineyard consultant Kelly Maher and Kirk's watchful eye and, we have replanted half of the vineyard using the newest clone technology most suitable for our specific terroir. In 2004, we planted 5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon clone 337 and rootstalk 101-14. We planted the clone 337 to add depth and texture to our traditional more old world Bordeaux style. Kirk and Kelly assert that “the 337 serves to brighten the fruit profile in the mid palate resulting in a harmonious melange of fruit profiles.”

We also planted a total of 1 acre consisting of both Cabernet Franc clone 327 Rootstalk 101-14 and Petit Verdot clone 400, rootstalk 101-14. The Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are blended into our JAX Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
