This wine is bursting with bright acidity and intriguing complexity, making it the perfect wine to pair! The acidity of the body is balanced seamlessly with the classic richness often found in Roussanne. Citrus and spice tangle on the palate, complemented by a luscious finish, all supported by an elegant framework of minerality. Delicious to drink now, or save for a few years to cultivate its complexity.
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.

This wine is perfect for almost any palate! Crafted to be semi-sweet, this is not your typical moscato. Balanced, lively acidity makes it a fantastic accompaniment to Thai, Indian, or Chinese food. This is not a wine to miss!

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.

A delightful white wine blend with a very aromatic bouquet and vibrant palate. Bright aromatics of honeysuckle, Asian pear, geraniums and citrus. The palate is fresh and vivacious with Braeburn apple and florals adding complexity. Very smooth with the citrus and floral notes leaving a long, lingering finish. An ideal wine by itself or paired with a party.

The 2016 Jacks Are Wild possesses the true essence of a bold red blend!

This wine’s complexity lends itself to a wildly diverse selection of pairings!

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!
Beautifully rich with unrestrained aromas of nectarine, lemon zest and roasted cashews. The palate is full, creamy, and balanced. Fresh Meyer lemon curd and ripe stone fruit are framed by intensely decadent flavors of nutty brown butter and vanilla. The long, lingering finish is perfectly matched with silky, smooth mouthfeel.
Our Cabernet-Merlot blend balances the bright red fruit of Merlot with the structure, power and dark fruit of Cabernet, to create a rich blend from hillside vineyards in the cooler parts of the Napa Valley. Easily one of our finest wines that is aging to perfection!

Muscat of Alexandria is one of the world's oldest varietals. It originated from ancient Egypt and it is one of the few varietals that has remained genetically unchanged. This beautiful dessert wine has bright flavors of mandarin orange, honey, lychee, peach and honeysuckle with captivating aromas of citrus and jasmine. The finish is long while the acid is balanced and dances nicely all the way through. This is an epic wine to complete a meal.
