‘14 aged well! In the autumn of 1989, Jess Jackson acquired the Zellerbach winery and renamed it in honor of his late father, Jess Stonestreet Jackson. From higher elevation vineyards, medium lemon color with stone fruit aromas & floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple and pear, a tad buttery with layered spice, vivid acidity supporting the French oak aging. Medium+ finish ending with citrus mineral character. Very nice, drink now!

In 1989, Jess Jackson acquired the Zellerbach winery and renamed it in honor of his late father, Jess Stonestreet Jackson. Aromas of red/black fruits with citrus notes and gentle spice. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors, vanilla spice with currant tones. Fine soft tannins, great balance on lingering finish ending with oak and cacao. Great value, will cellar well. Tasting Sample.

flashy and touch bug on the oak. more acid than a full ML usually has but if your looking for a lean laser style this isn't it

Buttery, light on fruit and not well balanced.

Best Chardonnay I’ve had in a while! 2014 Cougar Ridge Vineyard. Great smoky and butterscotch smell.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this Chardonnay since it did age in French oak. It tasted crisper than I expected. Perfect for a warm afternoon.

Oak and light lemon/butter white flowers. Gorgeous and full. Lemon zest pie crust and green apple finish. Solid.
