    Winemaker Notes

    This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon as a cocktail hour wine and pairs well with many fine foods. This versatility comes from bold, yet smooth tannin structure, great fruit flavors, nicely balanced acidity and excellent mouthfeel. With nice vanilla, cherry, and olive flavors, this wine will be a great wine to pair with savory foods.

    Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec

    Jason-Stephens, California
    Jason-Stephens Winery is located in the southern part of Silicon Valley which is in the Santa Clara Valley AVA. It is a leading high-tech winery with automated sorting systems, automated cap management, and other varied advanced winemaking equipment to ensure premium quality wine production from the historic growing region. The winery was founded by Jason Goelz who is also the winemaker. The Stephen of Jason-Stephens is Stephen Dorcich, the vineyard owner and vineyard manager, who planted the vineyard in 1986. Initially, Jason consulted with Stephen in managing the wines and sales of the wines to other high-end wineries in Napa and throughout California. That led to the eventual building of the winery on the property and the beginning of the partnership between the two. The winery opened at the end of 2008 and has been consistently growing since then.

    The success of the winery is driven by the balance in the wines’ structure. Their philosophy for the wines is to express the fruit aspect in the flavor and aromas as wine is a derivative of grapes. Their barrel selection ensures oak attributes without overwhelming the entire flavor profile. Great structure is derived from the acidity and smooth tannins. The overall balance mixed with a velvety texture and refined flavor is what makes these palate-crafted wines a memorable and enjoyable experience.

    California

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied. Plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Valley area, while Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

    Each American Viticultural Area (AVA) and sub-AVA of has its own distinct personality, allowing California to produce wine of every fashion: from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate vineyard acreage. Sonoma County is best known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône Blends blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, any wine lover will find something to get excited about here.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is now the world's most planted grape variety. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
