The 2012 Jacks are Wild is textured, layered, and complex. The Cab is sourced from the often fog enveloped Tourmaline vineyard on the eastern edge of Napa, creating balanced, opulent, terroir-driven fruit. The Merlot is sourced from Broken Rock vineyard, which is nestled at the base of the Atlas Mountains. This precise location affords the fruit high-altitude structure, with the lushness of the valley floor. These coalesce to form a rich and powerful Cab/Merlot blend that is seamless from beginning to end.

The Starbeam represents our commitment to creating the best wine possible! This beautiful Napa Valley Cabernet & Merlot blend was sourced from exquisite vineyards located in the higher elevation and cooler climates of Mt. Veeder, Pritchard Hill & Coombsville. It expresses rich black fruit with strong but silky tannins and great structure and an insanely long and elegant finish.

A lovely Cabernet from two of the finest vineyards in the Napa Valley, venerable George III in the heart of the valley, and the Caldwell Vineyard in the cool hills of Coombsville. Dark cherry and blackberry aromas burst from the glass, and combine with hints of vanilla from new French oak barrels. This wine is superb and hands down staff favorite!
The 2016 Jacks Are Wild possesses the true essence of a bold red blend! The most robust and structured fruit was hand selected and aged for 18 months in 100% French oak to create a blend of Petite Sirah, Tempranillo and Aglianico that is richly sophisticated, multi-layered and is ready to drink now or to tuck away in your cellar. This wine’s complexity lends itself to a wildly diverse selection of pairings!
