Jones Vineyard is located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley’s bench land. Farmed by third generation grower Ray Teldechi, these 22 year old vines are some of Sonoma’s oldest, rarest and finest Cabernet Franc vines. Only the best vintages will be used for these bottlings of Cabernet Franc.
This sixth bottling of Jones Vineyard appears dark purple with a ruby rim. At first scent, notes of dusty ripe blueberry, exotic spices and wild flower with hints of eucalyptus and vanilla. A broad palate of chocolate, light flavors of strawberry with notes of blueberry and cassis. Soft, lovely tannins, crisp acidity with notes of apple, spice and vanilla.
