We are excited to announce a very special wine tasting that we have planned for Tuesday, November 8, from 6pm to 8pm. We will be featuring the ultra-premium, estate grown wine from Napa Valley’s legendary Jarvis Estate.
David Crane from Jarvis will be co-hosing the event and will be available to answer any of your questions you might have about these great wines and the winery. Don’t forget to ask him about the 45,000 square foot cave that Jarvis’s winemaking facility is contained in. We hope to see you there!
2008 Jarvis Finch Hollow Chardonnay
“The 2008 Chardonnay Finch Hollow Vineyard comes from a relatively high elevation (1,000 foot high vineyard overlooking the Napa Valley). Attractive buttered brioche, caramelized orange and citrus notes follow the wine’s light gold color. Medium to full-bodied, chunky and flavorful, this pleasant Chardonnay can be drunk over the next several years.”
2007 Jarvis Merlot
This wine is somewhat bigger in body than our usual Merlots and offers excellent balance with intense flavors. It is 100% Merlot, no blending desired. It was cave fermented, aged for 20 months in new French oak and bottled unfiltered and unfined. This wine has been cave aged and was released when our winemaker felt it was ready for full enjoyment. Best to consume within ten years
2005 Jarvis Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 100% Cabernet has a deeply intense, ruby red color. After fermentation, an extended period of skin contact moderated the tannins in the wine achieving a smooth, approachable character at an early age. This Cabernet was cave fermented, aged 2 years in new French Nevers oak barrels and was bottled unfiltered and unfined. This wine has gone through extended cave aging and released when our winemaker felt it was ready for you and your friends to enjoy. Best to consume within ten years.
2006 Jarvis Cabernet Franc
The Jarvis 2006 Cabernet Franc has a lavender color and enticing nose. Over 23 months of aging in new French Nevers Oak barrels adds a hint of toasty oak and vanilla to the plum and blackberry aromas of this wine. This wine has been cave aged and was released when our winemaker felt it was ready for full enjoyment. Best to consume within ten years.
2007 Jarvis Lake William
The 2007 Lake William, follows in the footsteps of the 2006 Lake William, the winner of the famous World Tasting Event. Surely the 2007 with its sensational mouth feel could also win such an event. Those of you who missed out on the 2006 due to its short sales life time can now fully enjoy its replacement on our wine list. A wonderful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Excellent to drink now or age over the next few years.
