    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright, lush and juicy, Jester Cabernet Sauvignon shows a full-bodied palate and mouth-filling richness. 20% of the fruit has been handled in the Amarone manner. This technique of drying fruit adds complexity and fullness and produces soft juicy tannins. Jester Cabernet is upfront and approachable for early appreciation, delivering excellent quality for the price.

    Critical Acclaim:

    20% of the grapes used in this estate-grown wine are dried for 6-8 weeks prior to fermentation, the remainder cool-fermented on skins for 6-10 days; the wine spends 10 months in used oak. As one might expect, this has a major impact on the wine, but whether its entirely beneficial is a moot point, the desiccated fruit nuances tending to break the line of the palate. Still, the wine is interesting.

    Smooth, expressive and generous, offering a cascade of ripe black cherry and blackberry, with hints of tarragon and mint around the edges, flowing smoothly into a long finish.

    Wine Spectator

    Plummy and meaty, this Cabernet is a bold, mouthfilling trip from start to finish. It’s certainly not shy, boasting crisp acids and firm tannins to support the big fruit flavors. Drink now with a rare steak, or hold up to 10 years.
