2012 Jax Y3 Sauvignon Blanc
Calistoga, CA
Begins with fresh vibrant aromas of melon, pear, grapefruit and hints of dried apricot and fig. The palate captures the essence of the aromatics with a bounty of bright citrus and minerality laced with crisp acidity that lingers with a fresh finish.
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2012 Jax Y3 Chardonnay
Calistoga, CA
Begins with tropical finesse, fresh white fruit aromas and lingering notes of honeysuckle and sliced pear. The palate is clean with bright citrus and a tingling minerality. Neither pushy nor boastful, this Chardonnay will leave a lasting impression
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2012 Jax Y3 Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast, CA
Sitting along the California coastline, the Sonoma Coast is known for producing beautiful Pinot Noir. 2012 was no exception. Ocean breezes during bright, sunny days and brisk morning fog allow proper ripening while preserving the lively acidity in the wine. Gradual ripening allowed development of beautiful fruit flavors of cherry, kirsch, and light blackberry.
BTG $12.00 Retail $32.99

2010 Chateau De Marsan
Bordeaux, France
This has a good smoldering feel, with warm, steeped currant, plum and blackberry fruit melding nicely with bay leaf and charcoal notes. There’s solid flesh through the finish, with some chalky grip that needs brief cellaring to round into form. Best from 2014 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2011 Jax Estate Cabernet
Calistoga, CA
The bouquet opens up with notes of mocha, camphor and crushed herbs. The palate follows with flavors of cherry, espresso and blackberry with hints of new French oak. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared till 2028.
Retail $52.99
