    Winemaker Notes

    Dimitri Tchelistcheff, our winemaker, has called 1997 "THE JARVIS VINTAGE OF THE CENTURY". One of those rare vintages when the growing conditions are so perfect from bud break to harvest that the vines produce grapes that winemakers dream of. Lake William is a proprietary blend named after the lake which borders and cools the two estate vineyards which provide the grapes for this blend. The blend of the Lake William varies from vintage to vintage dependent on the blending preferences of our winemaker, Dimitri Tchelistcheff. The 1997 Lake William welcomes the delightful addition of our first harvest of Petit Verdot to its harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. This wine has an aroma rich in violets, fresh blueberries, and toasty vanilla. An intense combination of blueberry and cassis flavors is complimented by a lush, velvety finish. This blend has a very charming freshness about it and is ideal for drinking as a young wine. However, with proper cellaring, this wine will continue to develop beautifully for the next 10 years.

    Alcohol: 14.1% by volume

    Jarvis Winery Image
    The Jarvis Estate vineyards are located in the rugged hillside, four miles east of downtown Napa Valley. Its winemaking facility is entirely contained within 45,000 square feet of cave tunneled into the scenic Vaca Mountains; it is not only a visual masterpiece, but a technical masterpiece as well. Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes and are cave-aged on 100% new French oak prior to release.

    Red Wine

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
