Critical Acclaim

WS87 Wine & Spirits June 1, 2016

"This is plump and hearty, like nutmeat, the fruit carrying a ripe apricot flavor over an espresso scent from oak. It’s a generous style of chardonnay, but with fruit depth rather than obvious sugar." (87 pts.)

WE87 Wine Enthusiast 6/1/2016

"A flinty smoke aroma greets the nose first on this well-priced bottling from the Jackson family, with roasted Marcona almond, toasted brioche and seared lemon also showing. A bright energy bolsters the palate, where Meyer lemon ripeness gains pencil shavings and chipped oak flavors in the midpalate." (87 pts.)

SP86 Wine Spectator Jun 15, 2016

"Offers an odd mix of smoky, toasty oak and pineapple and green apple flavors, showing a raw, edgy texture. The appeal lies in the intense fruit. Drink now. 50,000 cases made." (86 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
