Tasting Notes:

The wine we feature this week is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from hand selected regions around Napa Valley. In a highly unusual and meticulous process, the grapes were sorted in the vineyards, optical sorted by the amazing Pellenc machine, then hand sorted again on a 30 foot sorting table with 16 people to ensure only the most perfect berries make it to the fermentation vessels. The result of this process is witnessed in the intense purity of Jason’s wine.

This wine has powerful and deep aromatics, loads of black fruit, hints of cedar, sweet vanilla, cassis, and super fine grain tannins which lead to a lengthy, broad and powerful finish.

About the Winery
Modus Operandi This is the story of a Dallas waiter turned Napa Valley Winemaker. Jason Moore's passion for wine began as he waited tables in various fine dining establishments in Dallas, Texas. Pursuing that passion took a monumental leap when he and his wife sold everything and moved to California in 2002. Jason learned how to make wine the hard way, hands on, literally practicing his winemaking skills from a garage with free grapes given to him. Learn more
