Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 95
“Coming from a site in Walla Walla, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Vineyard gives up gorgeous notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, earth and graphite in a voluptuous, supple, gorgeously textured package. Possessing ripe tannin, no hard edges and a beautiful elegance, drink it over the coming decade.”
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.
Jack’s Vineyard: (100%) Stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. Very cobbly, Freewater, loam-cobbles over gravel over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999.
2014 had an early spring and a wonderful, long summer with cool nights to help maintain great acidity in the grapes. Going into the Fall, temperatures cooled down quite a bit throughout the state, and we were able to hang the fruit for a long period of time before harvest. This combination allowed us to develop more complex flavors, while still maintaining the acidity to produce bright, focused wines.
