For all case (12 bottle) orders, delight in an exclusive wine tasting flight for two people at Jax Vineyards' newly renovated  tasting room in the heart of SOMA San Francisco.
Tasting Notes:

This exceptional Burgundy-style Pinot Noir has a true California flare and was added to the Jax Vineyards portfolio just two years ago by President/CEO and Certified Sommelier, Dan Parrott. A long-time Pinot enthusiast, Dan hand-selected vineyard blocks for this very special bottle of wine from the most supreme Pinot Noir locations in Russian River Valley. 

The Pinot Noir is modeled classically in the form of its Burgundy counterparts. Lower alcohol, pretty refinement and elegance are the framework that make this Pinot so special. Russian River brings to the picture nuances of bright cherry, strawberry patch, raspberry preserves, crushed spices and red roses. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, enjoy to 2022 and beyond.

About the grapes:

The Y3 label of Jax Vineyards is a tip of the hat to previous Jackson generations. Y3 was the cattle symbol used on the family's ranch, Yarrayne, two generations ago.

To remain true to the family's commitment of responsible farming, the Y3 Pinot Noir is sourced from sustainably farmed pristine vineyards in Russian River Valley. In addition to ideal grape growing locations, the Y3 Pinot Noir is a careful combination of 667 and Pommard clone grapes. The clone blend works in symphony as the 667 grapes give the wine structure and persistence, while the Pommard clone fills in the palate with pure, dark fruit flavors.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
When so much attention is given to the making of a wine, it seems only appropriate to select the food with the same attention. Pair this wine with pork, lamb, chicken and turkey. Also meatier fish, lighter pasta dishes and vegetarian items are good matches. Cheeses such as Edam, Gouda, Gruyere, light Cheddars and Chevre are excellent pairings as well. Chocolate or nut based desserts are also good choices.
About the Winery
Jax Vineyards This family owned and operated vineyard was purchased by David Jackson in 1996. The family sold grapes to other producers for many years until they started producing their own outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon from their prime Calistoga land. Calistoga would later become its own AVA (American Viticultural Area), now famous for its unique terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon. With the help of Kirk Venge, a renowned Napa Valley winemaker and one of the "top 26 winemakers in the world", Jax Vineyards now produces many different wine varieties and blends to satisfy all palates.
