94 POINTSJeb Dunnuck
“It offers a super-rich bouquet of blueberries, plums, Asian spices, sagebrush, and lavender. With full-bodied richness and depth as well as sweet tannins and rocking levels of purity, it’s easily the standout in the lineup.”

94 POINTSWine Enthusiast
“This big, bold wine tastes of blackberry pie dusted in clove and nutmeg, giving it a lush and plush feel. Thick and densely structured, it offers elongated tannins and a memorable, spicy finish.”

93 POINTSRobert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
“The deep garnet-purple colored wine offers up cassis, baked blackberries and blueberry compote with lifted notes of spice box and licorice plus a touch of sage. Full-bodied, rich, firm and grainy, the palate has loads of freshness and an aniseed finish.”

Winemaker's Notes
Sourced from the prized block on the JAX Estate, the Block 3 Cabernet reflects the premium fruit of the vineyard. After noticing such remarkable fruit from this block, we decided to isolate this gem and bottle merely 5 barrels. This project is an intense expression of the red rock, alluvial soil at the base of Mt. Saint Helena. The lush fruit driven profile of the 337 clone produces a wine that is well structured with lovely herbal notes on the nose.
