Winemaker Notes

This wine opens with generous aromas of red cherry, raspberry, wild strawberry, and spice. The palate delivers a lovely, smooth texture and notes of licorice, pomegranate, and toast accented by a pleasing touch of red tea on the lingering finish.

An impressive offering, undeniably rich and concentrated, with potent dark berry and licorice flavors. Offers an element of finesse and refinement, enhanced by aromatic floral scents. Drink now through 2024.

Staying elegant and true, the stylish, red-fruited 2015 J Vineyards Pinot Noir shows up on the palate with brightness and vitality. The wine's raciness pairs it well with seared wild salmon. (Tasted: March 20, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Red Wine

View all wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
