2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Jones Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Tasting Notes

This 8th bottling of Jones Vineyard appears bright ruby rim. Very aromatic nose notes of grilled artichoke, blueberry and black currant. On the palate, thick and viscous with notes of dry fig, pomegranate, mocha and dark cherry. Long lingering finish with solid tannins for lasting cellaring potential.
