Winemaker's Notes:

Jacob-Hart has long been the heart of our reserve program. The fruit has distinctive cherry tea notes, with a long, sweet texture to the mouth. Early in the wines life, the aroma of green tea dominates, but as the wine develops, the nose takes on dried cherry, fresh raspberry and brown tea qualities. Most striking is the distinctive feel to the palate of the wine made from Jacob-Hart. I am often asked if there is residual sugar in these wines, as the mouth has such lovely roundness and a velvety texture.
