Jax Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga 2014
RP94: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a larger cuvée of 998 cases. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, it is another intriguing Napa value and a sleeper as well. Deep purple in color, with loads of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, the wine is rich, dense, multi-layered, long and pure. This is super and a great value. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."
David Jackson purchased this family vineyard after 5 years of searching for his ideal terroir. JAX Vineyards sources their estate Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard in northern Calistoga. This has bright acidity and a core of ripe fruit, with a persistent mineral and herbal finish. It’s rich, dense, and pure. A great value and drinkable now but will age for years.
