The JAX 2017 Pinot Noir comes from the Calesa Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap of the Sonoma Coast. The vineyard was named 'Calesa,' which means 'stagecoach' in Spanish; long ago, this site served as a resting stop for horse drawn carriages! Medium ruby in color, this Pinot Noir offers a very pretty nose with aromas of dried violets and rose petals, bergamot, wood-smoke and cola, with a core of ripe red and black fruits with spicy hints. The palate is concentrated with spicy red and black fruits, an earthy touch, and just the right amount of acidity.
