1996 Jones Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet


"Deep, dark ruby in color. Has a ripe cassis and blackcurrant type fruit in the nose with layered aromas of sweet oak and toast. Pretty classic for Cabernet. Bright powerful fruit in the mouth, lots of blackberry with a wonderful chewy texture. Big and rich in the mouth has an elegance and softness at the same time. Light dusty tannins in the finish. Overall a balanced, lovely wine. Has its own distinct footprint unique to this tiny estate vineyard."
