2014 Jurisprudence Red Wine Napa Valley

$134.95

Jurisprudence is well-named, because if we were to divulge the vineyard sources of this Cabernet, we would soon find one or more legal practitioners lighting up line one. This wine is our ace in the hole. The gravelly aromatics come from St. Helena; the blackcurrant liqueur is from Oakville AVA. So opulent, spherical and pure. This 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc is pure Napa Valley nobility.

Jurisprudence is well-named, because if we were to divulge the vineyard sources of this Cabernet, we would soon find one or more legal practitioners lighting up line one. This wine is our ace in the hole. In the simplest terms, Jurisprudence is a pure barrel selection. We taste every lot from our Beckstoffer To Kalon plots in the cellar and identify the parcels we believe will be ready for action ahead of the rest. It's not a qualitative assessment as such. We're just looking for the flowers that we think are going to bloom first. It’s the precocious little brother to the Justice Series wines.
