Jones Family Vineyard The Sisters Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|California, Napa Valley, Calistoga

The Sisters began in 2000 as a project to create a wine from the youngest of our estate-grown vines and has evolved into a wine that is quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sisters is the more forward of our wines with a red fruit-driven palate. While it is a wine that one can enjoy immediately upon release, it is thrilling to see the evolution each vintage goes through as it ages in the cellar.
2018 The Sisters expresses a very dark black fruit profile laced with exotic spice notes and framed with a broad-shouldered tannin structure. In the glass, the wine exhibits a completely opaque dark purple hue. The layered palate exhibits a wave of macerated blackberry, black licorice, cedar, nutmeg, dark chocolate, and lavender oil. Drinking well now this wine will also age well in the cellar for many years to come.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Sisters is an exotic, plush wine. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, spice, and floral notes are front and center. Old vines planted with heritage clones on terraced blocks yield a Cabernet with a very unique aromatic profile and tons of complexity. Creamy and expressive, it is an absolute joy to taste.
