2011 Jones Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet

"For Napa Valley classicists, this wine will ring some bells. Due to the cooler temperatures and early rains in 2011, the fruit was harvested at lower brix than in previous vintages. At the winery we ensured the grapes were given the ultimate care and attention, including a vigorous sorting regime and closely monitored fermentation temperatures. The result is a wine that possesses power, depth, and finesse while still expressing the traits inherent with the vintage. The finished wine has dense aromas of wet river stone, cocoa powder, and nutmeg. The follow through on the palate is marked by blackberry, cassis, graphite and burnt sage. Less fruit-driven than in riper vintages, this wine displays a consistent, refined, silky tannic frame and elegant mouth feel."

- Thomas Rivers Brown, Winemaker, July 2013
