2011 Jillian’s Blend
Our family has been proudly growing grapes in Napa Valley for two generations; this unique fusion of four varietals honors the youngest member of the third generation in our farming family, our daughter Jillian. This Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend with a twist of Rhone is structured, but easy to drink. Jillian’s is the only blend we make and it’s our most popular red wine.

Enticing aromatics of fresh tobacco leaf, star anise, clove, and a flash of rhubarb lead into a bright bramble berry entry backed with a hint of smokiness and an approachable, moderate tannic structure on the palate. A hefty tapestry of tart cherry, baking spices and espresso offer a satisfying finish.
