Producer Tasting Note (2019 Vintage)

”From a brilliant vintage, the 2019 familiar air offers primary aromas of spiced black fruit, cedar box and Chambord. Flavors of black cherry, mixed berries, and Asian spice are followed by rich lush tannins and a lingering silky finish. Although it is drinking well now, it will open up more with two to three years in the cellar and continue to evolve over the next 15 years.”

RobertParker.com Tasting Note (2019 Vintage)

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - 95 Points - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts with gregarious notions of stewed black plums, black cherry preserves and wild blueberries with hints of violets, fallen leaves, cinnamon stick and tapenade. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the palate is packed with expressive, juicy black and blue fruits, finishing very long and very fragrant."

"As an admirer of the diversity and quality of California's wines, and with nearly 37 years of experience tasting and visiting the state's viticultural regions, wine-broker Kimberly Jones has consistently demonstrated an incredible talent for representing many of the best producers. With her skilled palate, a limitless enthusiasm, and insatiable curiosity, she has assembled a portfolio of wines that is breath-taking in its diversity, value, and exquisite quality."

Some say Kimberly Jones is the Queen of Napa Valley. We agree, but that's not all she does. With nearly 40 years of experience, Kimberly Jones is California's leading fine wine broker. Not only does she release wine from Napa and California, but she also releases stunning reds and whites from France. These include The Arbelist; a Merlot driven blend from right bank Bordeaux and Operation Dragoon; a Southern Rhone red blend of Grenache and Syrah.

KJ wines deftly merge the best of both California and France in style, offering lush and approachable but also refined and balanced versions sure to please lovers and haters of both regions.
