Winemaker's Notes:

Why 22? Well, there's the atomic number of Titanium, the stealthy F-22 Raptor, Catch-22, and the number of bones in your head. Start it off with "19" and you have the year that brought us Eskimo Pie®, the Hollywood Bowl, Jack Kerouac, Ava Gardner, Charles Schulz, and Kurt Vonnegut. There's the fact that there are 22 balls in snooker, 22 players on a football field, and it's the number of the NFL's all-time leading rusher. There are also the classic roulette scenes in The Sting, Lost in America, and, of course, Casablanca. Number 22, we salute you.

This wine has aromas of blackberry, cassis, cherry, and toasted nuts.

It's round, very balanced, and rolls around on the tongue; loaded with flavor, complex and lively, it has a soft finish where the flavors reverberate.

My Notes:

About JAQK Cellars:

JAQK Cellars is the creation of three people—Craig MacLean, Katie Jain, and Joel Templin—and an idea: do what you love.

When you follow your passion, you pour yourself into it wholeheartedly. Work ceases being work. It becomes something you enjoy, something that feels more like, well, play.

For Craig, there’s nothing he’d rather be doing than walking through vineyards, crumbling clumps of soil in his hands, smelling the air, understanding a particular harvest, and coaxing from it a nectar that’s wonderfully delicious. Katie and Joel share with Craig a passion for wine, but their first love is the world of graphic design. They were drawn to it at an early age and have immersed themselves in it ever since. At their firm, Hatch Design, they craft brand identities, packaging, and communications that not only further their clients’ goals, but make the world a little more beautiful a place for all of us.

And so JAQK Cellars was born. Not so much a business as a blank canvas. Not so much an enterprise for three colleagues as a way for three creative souls to indulge their passions. A way for them to slave away doing what they love till their hearts’ content.
