Espresso, flowers, black cherries, and oceanic nuances power the nose. The wine has a vibrancy to its dark red berries, licorice, coffee bean, and a nice, salty endnote that holds your attention. Drink from 2025-2041.

Medium-bodied, round, lush, and oaky, with a strong espresso and vanilla note in the nose and palate that should fade with time, giving you more of all those, sweet, ripe, black cherries, plums, and earthy notes, along with licorice and cocoa accents. Drink from 2023-2035.

A bit oaky, but once past the espresso nose you find flowers, cocoa, tobacco, and dark cherries on the nose and on the round, fleshy, fruity palate. Drink from 2022-2032.

One of the few American owned estates in Bordeaux, the late Jess Jackson purchased the property in 2003. The wine is big, tannic, full bodied and concentrated, with a lot of structure, freshness and depth, The fruit is ripe, with its center of black cherries, licorice and espresso bean, but lacks softness in the texture. Give this at least 5 years to come together.

Tannic, full bodied and powerful, but lacking the plush, sensuous characteristics of the vintage, perhaps time will help soften the tannins while better integrating the oak. This is one of the few American owned estates in Bordeaux. It was purchased by Jess Jackson in 2003.

Plenty of crisp, ripe juicy, dark fruits, firm tannin and freshness, coupled with a red and black plum, coffee bean, smoke and licorice character to top things off. Well made, interesting to taste, as this Merlot dominated blend comes from the Jess Jackson family of wines. The wine was made from a blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
