Mission Codename On a Jettlynn
Our Operatives love the wines of Jettlynn, and we’ve got a super duper steal of a deal, today, on their deeply flavorful, richly elegant Jettlynn 2016 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine delivers an incredible bang for the buck. We recommend going long on this one. You want enough to last you the year. It is always fun to see how wines progress as they age.
We hope you’re drinking this in the daytime, because holding this wine up to the sun reveals a stunning crimson color. The nose is wild, untamed, and enticing with huge dusty bramble and powerful red peppercorn. Fresh cut roses, blackberry, and sandalwood rounds it out. Spice and fruit in equal measure: A lot of it! Incredibly flavorful blend of boysenberry, blackberry, red cherry, plum, and hibiscus. Wow! The fruit bursts through the seams, unconstrained by the tannin. Simply hedonistic and wondrous disregard for rules. This wine is the star of the show. You’ll polish the bottle off before the food is off the grill.
Paso Robles, in California’s Southern Central Coast region (San Luis Obisbo County), is one of California’s oldest and fastest-evolving wine growing regions. The first vines were planted in the late 1700s by the Spanish missionaries. Paso’s unique climate influences its vines more than any other area in California. The hot, dry, weather (that is only minimally affected by coastal fog) and wine, results in grapes that are more concentrated in flavor and intensity. This climate makes Paso uniquely suited to grow the big red varietals including Zinfandel, Syrah, and as in this wine, Cabernet Sauvignon.
We guaranteed that you’ll enjoy this wine as much as we do!
