JCB Caviar Vodka | August 1, 2018 | The SOMM Journal

JCB Caviar Vodka ($150) We ventured from garden to forest and now to the sea, where this vodka captures merroir. Aromas of anise and cocoa warm the nose, and there is a definite, resplendent scent of sea breeze guiding the way to the deeper  palate flavors. Creamy licorice coats the tongue while dark chocolate possesses a hint of  saltiness. On the finish, tobacco leaf emerges, and it’s believable that this spirit is blessed by  a unique infusion of ingredients: Caviar, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir may have been a concoction conceived by Neptune himself.

JCB Gin | August 1, 2018 | The SOMM Journal

JCB Gin ($125) is enhanced by the native flora that grows in the Biodynamically farmed vineyard gardens on the Boisset property. Dandelion, cham- omile, lemon balm, and more than 40 other botanicals (including 30 organic plants) are infused into this London  Dry–style gin. Essence of sunflower, lilacs, and verbena come to life on the nose as the liquid,  dotted with white pepper and caper berries, melts across the palate.Violets thread through the  herbs for a spring garden effect throughout.

JCB Truffle Vodka | August 1, 2018 | The SOMM Journal

JCB Truffle Vodka ($150) is a true Earth Mother. More for- est than garden, the Périgord black truffles infused into the  base spirit bring out umami notes that evoke a savory tonality. On the nose, magnolia and blue lilac come through with a lushness so 
broad, we took some time for reverie before the first sip. Despite the whisper of truffle, jasmine, rose petals, blueberry, and vanilla caramel all shine through on the lengthy, voluptuous palate.
