J Vineyards & Winery 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

New offering Two to three years, 4gr Dusty, steely, firm nose shows hints of toast, chalk, dried pear and dried flowers. Wonderfully tense, and snappy in the mouth this offers up mineral driven flavors laced with hints of dried herbs, polleny flowers and gorgeous yeasty notes that support a core of dried apple and pear fruit. gentle and delicate in the mouth with a finish that is clear and tense with dry white fruit and a little lemon curd accent. Wonderfully pure and focused. 92pts

A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

A fresh well balanced Riesling with hints of ripe peach and pear and ample acidity and sweetness packaged in a liter size bottle to make holiday planning a breeze.

Shows depth and maturity, yet this is still fresh and lively. Aromas of baked apple, hazelnut and yeast lead to layered apple cider and spicy toast flavors. Drink now.

Gracefully opens up with crisp lemon peel, honeysuckle and delicate yeast aromas; on the palate it mixes apple, grapefruit and a sweet hint of angel food cake; the acidity adds just enough liveliness and the citrus zest leads to a lingering, lush, warm pear finish.

As much as I love real French Champagne, the price is often prohibitive for my budget, so that's why I was so excited to discover the J Cuvée 20! For half the price, this California bubbly from renowned Sonoma producer Jordan maintains the same level of depth and complexity, though the style is a bit crisper and less yeasty. I'm in love with the bright citrus fruit notes that show along with the classic pear and red apple notes, while the slight toastiness delivers a smooth, dry finish.

Vibrant and fresh, with floral apple and anise aromas and crisp yet creamy pear and spicy yeast flavors.

Gracefully opens up with crisp lemon peel, honeysuckle and delicate yeast aromas. Upon entry, these notes are followed by a mix of Fuji apple, grapefruit and a sweet hint of angel food cake. The acidity adds just enough liveliness and the citrus zest leads to a lingering, warm pear and lush finish.
