“Ripeness is paramount in this full-bodied, dark-fruit-forward wine crafted by winemaker Kirg Venge. It smells and tastes soaked in late-picked grape and berry flavors, has a broad, almost thick texture and full mouthfeel. The oak influence is not obvious, but adds complexity and grip to the midpalate and finish.” – J.G."

The Wine
The focus of our JAX Y3 wines, sourced from AVAs (spanning Napa, Sonoma and North Coast) is to craft wines that express their unique terroir. The JAX Y3 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the rocky, high elevation, “Red Hills” AVA region in Lake County. The coarse, red soil is comprised of large obsidian rocks (due to its proximity to Mount Konocti) resulting in excellent drainage and low yields. We specifically selected the grape lots from various vineyard blocks to add layers of complexity. Lake County’s warm temperatures and volcanic soils contributed layers of ripe flavors, creating a deep, rich palate. This wine was aged for 10 months in 30% new French Oak Barrels.

Tasting Notes
Dark aromas of ripe blackberries, currants and a hint of spice. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon coats the palate with dense layers of black cherry, cocoa nib, forest floor and soft hints of cedar. Full-bodied and well proportioned, this wine carries through to a vibrant and lively finish.

The Winery
Established in 1996, JAX is the collaboration of father and son, David and Trent Jackson. Together they made their first vintage from David’s ten acre dry-farmed vineyard in Calistoga, Napa Valley. In 2003, Trent’s sister Kimberly joined the family business, first by critically hiring winemaker Kirk Venge.

In 2006, JAX introduced the Y3 brand to engage a wider audience with myriad varieties. The “Y3” symbol was the cattle symbol on the Jackson’s grandparents’ cattle ranch, Yarrayne, on the Gold Coast of Australia. The “3” pays homage to three generations of land-tilling entrepreneurs. Fruit-forward profiles are driven by top-quality fruit from esteemed Napa and Sonoma Vineyards. Everything produced by JAX is hand-harvested, family-owned and earth-friendly.
