Jackson Estate Winemaster's Blend Red Wine Blend 2018
This Red Wine Blend shows bright red fruit with a fleshy mid-palate. Balanced with structured, elegant tannins. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a little Petit Verdot added for complexity.
Jackson Estate wines showcase our cherished vineyard estate properties located on rare, coastal California terroir of mountain tops, ridges, hillsides and raised benchland soils. This limited release allows our winemakers to emphasize the extraordinary terroir of our unique properties and craft very small lots for refined palates.
AGING: 20 months in French Oak.
Established in 1984, the Alexander Valley AVA is a long, slim winegrowing region defined by the Russian River winding up its midline and the Mayacamas Mountains lining its eastern borders. The portion of the AVA we farm for this wine is comprised of mountains, ridges and hillsides and is filled with a diverse array of soils, mostly volcanic with a lot of fractured igneous rock in the rocky loam.
