Last ‘15, 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, golden straw with stone fruit aromas & floral tones. On the palate apple and pear flavors, buttery with layered spice, goid acidity balance supporting the French oak aging. Medium finish ending with citrus mineral chatacteristics. Very nice, drinking well now.

Just lovely buttery Chardonnay, with a lot of oak that is prominent in the nose. A very enjoyable wine.

Recommended to us and did not disappoint. Medium butter, oak, velvety texture. A really nice wine for fall & winter when I don’t want to open an expensive bottle.

Once in a while you come across a wine that just gives you a sense of ease and comfort, and this is one of those. Everything seems to be middle of the pack, but they coexists in harmony - the fruit, the oak, the minerality, the acidity, the texture. Very enjoyable.
11 months in French oak barrel, 39% new.

In the autumn of 1989, Jess Jackson acquired the Zellerbach winery and renamed it in honor of his late father, Jess Stonestreet Jackson. Golden straw with stone fruit aromas with floral tones. On the palate apple and pear flavors with strong spice, vivid acidity supporting the French oak aging. Medium finish ending with citrus mineral chatacteristics.
