Full on

A Story: Raising seven kids who still like each other seemed a good enough reason to canonize my Mom, or at least, to name a vineyard after her.

The Cliff Notes: Dark garnet is the color. The primary aroma of deep-ripe cherry hauls hitchhiking ancillaries of melted crayon, camphor, dust, sweet alfalfa and graham. In the mouth, substantial structure and lively acidity delivers full cherry and juicy peach with good grip on a long tail-out.

The Building of: Six- to eight-barrel-lot, wild-yeast fermentations in stainless steel, 100% barrel aged for 18 months: 14% new, 29% one year, 57% three year or older. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2017.

Ageability: We absolutely recommend that you consider decanting to get it some air within its first three years. This wine should easily climb in complexity beyond a dozen years.

Vineyards: Our dry-farmed, organic St. Dolores Estate (7 years) continues to bring that anomaly of both structured while at the same time juicy, from the vines to the wines. This is the second single vineyard release of what is 100% JKC, our hill, our hands, our vines, our land.
