Jax Vineyards Estate Cabernet
2015 Jax Vineyards Estate Cabernet....$44.99
Recently I was able to meet and taste the current line up of Jax Vineyards with Dan Parrott, President and CEO of Jax Vineyards. Luckily Dan brought a sample of the not yet released 2015 Estate Cabernet, this wine is a perfect reminder of how great an under $50 Napa Cabernet can be. With wine prices rising around the world in general and Napa Valley in particular it is always nice to find a wine that knocks your socks off for under $50.
Another blockbuster Cabernet from Super Star Winemaker Kirk Venge:
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays gorgeous fruit, plenty of sucrosity and ripeness, but no heaviness or cloyness. Beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, oodles of glycerin and richness announce another great vintage in Napa – 2015. This lush, heady wine will drink well young and age easily for 15 or more years.
