Jaffe Estate Wines
2009 Transformation Proprietary Blend
Red Blend •Jaffe Estate Vineyard
California: Napa Valley
After a nearly two year hiatus, we are thrilled to welcome back Jaffe Estate Winery, a winery that was very well loved by our Operatives and our in-house agents alike.
Today’s Jaffe Estate Wines 2009 Transformation Proprietary Blend is a dark, rich, concentrated wine that is a harmonious blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Each varietal really shines through, giving this wine a real sip and discuss appeal.
Our entire tasting panel adored this dark and lovely wine, which we offer to you with our recommendation.
Enjoy this ready-to-drink wine now, or hold for the next decade or more.
Dark and foreboding, with a dark heart of nearly black crimson. At the edges, a sliver of garnet cuts a perfect ring around the wine.
Lush and full on the nose with aromas of blackberry, dark plum, black cherry and braised fig. As the wine opens up, it begins to unveil aromas of leather, nutmeg, clove and flinty minerals.
Dark cherry juice infused black tea melds with braised plum, braised mission fig, dark berry compote and tobacco. Allow the wine to breathe and it reveals dark minerals and subtle warm spice.
Long and elegant, with earth, fruit and spice dwindling in even proportion. Drying and plush at the end with a lovely, mouth puckering punctuation.
Enjoy this wine with a risotto with cherry tomatoes, asparagus and peas. Add prosciutto and shavings of parmigiano reggiano.
