Winemaker Notes

This single vineyard wine is fermented in stainless steel. It helps preserve the characteristics of the Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, fruit-forward and crisp with a bright minerality finish. Tropical notes are complemented with clean citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit and the palate finishes beautifully.

WW 89
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Focused and pure, the well-conceived 2016 Jax Vineyards Y3 Sauvignon Blanc offers a clear and concise look at this grape variety—offering notes of citrus, grass, and dried herbs. The wine's attractive and distinctive flavors pair it well with a salad of baby lettuce, fresh mozzarella, and grilled peaches. (Tasted: September 21, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Jax Vineyards The Jax Team with Winemaker Kirk Venge Winery Image

Brother and sister team, Trent and Kimberly Jackson collaborated with their vintner “green thumb” father to found their first label in 1996. Over time the two identified their unique niche among next generation wine enthusiasts. Outliers from the dominating short list of old school napa wineries, the two saw an opportunity to buck the “en vogue” winemaking style of their day to focus on the unique terroir of their family vineyard. After all, “change comes first at a small scale driven by the smaller more nimble producers.”

Soon after, cult Winemaker Kirk Venge was recruited to create balanced wines reflecting varietal character and a sense of place. Passionate about our vineyard site, integral to our clone and root stalk selections, and now 15 years in, Kirk has reinforced their instinct that focus should always be on “sense of place” to understand the nuances that allow us to make great wine.

To differentiate from their small lot single vineyard Jax line, they launched “Y3” to scale and offer more “true to varietal” wines from various AVAs (spanning Napa and Sonoma). The “Y3” symbol was the cattle symbol used on their grandparents’ cattle ranch, Yarrayne. The “3” represents three generations of land tilling entrepreneurs.

In 2013, the siblings recruited a third partner, Dan Parrott, a no nonsense individual with a laser focus on balanced wines (historically working in Italian import houses) and a true burgundian aficianado. Dan keeps the sibling rivalry in check and runs Jax like a well oiled machine.
