The '14 is incredible. Big fruit, great tannins, just a pleasant wine to have. Opened yesterday and I'm in love!
I love the faint minerality, blackberry, light pepper, and a hint of a produce section, dirt and all!

Big, ripe, black fruits, richly saturated flavor. Fun not too serious.

My favorite wine from jax. Great value wine for 60 bucks. Only 3 barrels (75 cases). Doesn’t scream cab franc (no green), but i find it more interesting than the cab. It was neck and neck with the block 3 cab which is 2x the price.

This is my favorite of the JAX line up. Man this is good. Varietally correct. Dried Herbal notes but not overpowering. Darker fruit.

Big, bold taste of blackberries and ripe strawberry with a slight mineral and moss. Medium tannins make this easy to drink.
