JAX Vineyards sources this estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s vineyard in northern Calistoga. David Jackson purchased the family vineyard after 5 years of searching for his ideal terroir encompassing alluvial loam soil, dry farmed vineyards, and the elemental protection of our little valley. The JAX name represents an updated twist and memorable abbreviation of the family name.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a larger cuvée of 998 cases. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, it is another intriguing Napa value and a sleeper as well. Deep purple in color, with loads of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, the wine is rich, dense, multi-layered, long and pure. This is super and a great value. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."
