This JACK Winery 2018 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of two powerhouse red varietals grown in the Napa Valley. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon comprise the blend which begins with a crimson, cherry red, burgundy-purple- blue haze color. Aromas of raspberry, tart cherry, cinnamon and plum appear first, before herbal notes of bay leaf and sage. Bright, fresh flavors of wild berries, juicy cherries and currants meld into a vibrant, yet smooth, flavor bomb. The foundation of this wine is of a solid structure, while the texture is smooth, and the finish sensually long. The wine pairs well with starters such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, roasted nuts, dried fruit and charcuterie. It also adds a powerful dimension to meals ranging from gourmet burgers, to wood oven-fired pizzas, to braised roast to filet mignon.
The wine is full-bodied, yet elegant and complex. The balance of the wine and vintage gives it a depth and richness that really shines through. Notes of dark fruits and raspberries paired with a long finish.
This one of a kind Cabernet is made from grapes grown on Atlas. This beautiful, garnet-colored wine is guaranteed to impress family and friends with its rich aroma of black cherry, blueberry, fresh violets and mocha. The sophisticated flavor profile of currant, plum, vanilla and nutmeg is designed to please the palate. Aged for 22 months in brand new French oak barrels (Darnaju and Taransaud)
. The finish is pleasant with plush, rich tannins. Sit back. Relax. And enjoy every sip.
