What could be thought of as the entry level wine of the estate and a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, the ruby purple-hued 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon CJ offers a charming, classic Napa bouquet of blackcurrants, red plums, spice, and earthy flowery forest floor aromas and graphite. Rich, full-bodied, balanced and classic, with good minerality, it’s far from a simple, entry-level wine and has real depth and character. There are 1,500 cases and it’s a smoking good effort that will keep for 10-15 years.
"This 2016 is probably the most dramatically intense & opulent style of CJ to date. Quite the evolution from a vibrant, youthful style wine to a one that is sophisticated & mature-very much like its namesake Chloe & Jeremy" ~Philippe & Cherie Melka, proprietors
"Introducing our 20th vintage of this amazing Napa Valley Cabernet. Exhibiting a nose of dark cherry & blackcurrant, nuanced with notes of creosote, graphite, cloves & vanilla. This dense & full bodied wine is layered from the start & finished with powerful coating tannins. This wine has an incredible oily texture & a multi-dimensional structure with amazing balance, power & sophistication-it is sure to age gracefully for years." - Winery
