Tasting Notes

The 2018 Jacks are Wild is robust and sophisticated, with surprisingly varied aromatics intertwined seamlessly. A deep core of midnight purple, lightening to deep magenta on the edges, hints at its blend and balance. Rich aromatics of caramel, black mission fig, and chocolate lead into intriguing aromas of thyme, oregano, soil, and tomato, embodying the essence of a summer garden. The palate entices with a depth of dark fruits, blackberry, black currant, and black cherry, interwoven with delicate notes of quince and fig. The ripe fruit is supported with clove, vanilla, black pepper, and bacon fat. Each sip finishes with a delicate swath of velvet tannins, showing restraint and elegance. Enjoy today or observe how the intricacy of flavors develops over the next 5 to 10 years.

The Jacks Are Wild name celebrates Tom's family heritage and the Jack family's legendary fall barbeques! Each fall on the family cattle ranch, they would celebrate with family, friends, and neighbors who helped make it a success! On any farm, be it cattle, grapes, or other agriculture, it takes a village to bring it all in. We invite you to savor this wine and to celebrate your own 'roundup' with your loved ones.
