- Discover one of the finest Sierra Foothills red wines! Aglianico grapes originate from the mountains south of Naples, Italy and do insanely well in the El Dorado AVA.

On the palate, this big and powerful wine has a great structural balance with opulent flavors of blackberry, fig, and hazelnut with hints of clove, pepper and bay leaves. Structured with medium tannins. Smooth with a long finish.

2016 Jacks Are Wild
- 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 where all elements come together effortlessly. You are first drawn in by the deeply opaque ruby color and vibrant aromatics of blackberry jam, chocolate, raspberry, coffee, and toasted oak. The enticing palate leads with flavors of blueberry, dried fig, dark cherry and savory notes of oregano, rosemary, and hints of fresh summer tomato. This blend has impeccable balance and ripeness with an astonishing depth that signifies the hallmark characteristics of these spectacular varietals. With an elegantly long, savory finish and its beautifully intertwined acidity, this wine will continue to age famously for the next 10 to 15 years.
