A fruit-forward wine from Jura? Perhaps a climate-change red… This is rich and sweetly ripe, yet still tight with a tart apple acidity. It shows depth and character as it opens with air, expanding beyond the violet-scented sweet grape flavors toward spice and earth.

A very delicious white with aromas and flavors of sliced apples, pears and lemons. Medium body. Hints of celery. Creamy texture and flavorful finish.

Not yet bottled, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon JCB #10 shows the quality of the vintage and is a magical wine in the making. As with the 2017, it’s a blend of three different vineyards (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) and is resting in 55% new French oak. It has remarkable purity and freshness as well as full-bodied richness, ripe, sweet tannins, and classic blue fruits, tobacco, and earthy, sappy herb-like aromatics. The vintage can at times lack some mid-palate depth, but this is concentrated, balanced, and just a stunning looking barrel sample.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon JCB #1 is made in a prettier, more elegant style, yet it still packs plenty of oomph and richness. Coming from the west side of St. Helena and aging in 60% new barrels. It offers a terrific bouquet (blue fruits, violets, tobacco, and mint) as well as full-bodied richness and depth, terrific tannin quality, and flawless balance. It’s a beautiful barrel sample.
