Description

Our family has been proudly growing grapes in Napa Valley for two generations; this unique fusion of four varietals honors the youngest member of the third generation in our farming family, our daughter Jillian. This Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend with a twist of Rhone is structured, but easy to drink. Jillian’s is the only blend we make and it’s our most popular red wine.

Tasting Notes

This visually attractive wine, has a deep ruby ​​crimson hue when held to the light. The aroma has heartwarming notes of vanilla, blackberry preserve, currants and warmed spices. The approachable tannins rest gently on the palate, complimented by flavors of fresh blueberries, strawberry rhubarb and roasted coffee. The long, memorable finish leaves you yearning for the next sip.
